That's all you're getting for now! Liverpool's title-winners raise the 'Champions' flags at Melwood as celebrations continue... but their trophy-lift is set to be put back due to Chelsea's FA Cup progress

Liverpool stars have posed with banners saying 'Champions 2019/20' at their Melwood training ground.

The Reds were finally confirmed winners of the Premier League for the first time in their history last Thursday after Chelsea beat second-placed Manchester City 2-1. 

Wild celebrations occurred on the night and continued on Monday as the Reds showed off their latest accomplishment ahead of their trip to the Etihad on Thursday.

Captain Jordan Henderson was at the front of the picture with manager Jurgen Klopp with other stars Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and the rest of the Liverpool squad in attendance. 

But it is not known when Henderson will lift the trophy as the champions are normally presented with the honour on the final home game of the season but as Chelsea advanced to the FA Cup semi-finals, the original July 18 fixture will be pushed back to a later date. 

Frank Lampard's side will play Manchester United that weekend at Wembley with their match against Liverpool likley to be played a few days later.

Since being crowned champions, Klopp has paid tribute to Liverpool legends Sir Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard after guiding the club to their first league title in 30 years.

Before Klopp, Dalglish was the last Liverpool manager to win the league title and in his second spell at the club between 2011 and 2012 made the key acquisition to sign current Reds skipper Jordan Henderson from Sunderland.

However it is Dalglish's understanding of the club and its fanbase that Klopp feels helps drive the connection between Liverpool and the supporters. 

'I would like to pay special tribute to two of our former players who set many of the standards that all of us have to follow,' he wrote.

'Sir Kenny Dalglish is the soul of this club. His understanding of what Liverpool is and what it means to the people is vital to everything that we do.'

Klopp also pointed towards the contributions of Gerrard who retired in the summer of 2015 just a few months before the German took charge at Anfield.

Naming the current Rangers manager as a 'symbol' of Liverpool along with Dalglish, he states that Gerrard should be remembered for helping put the club in a position to challenge for honours.

'Steven Gerrard is the legs. He carried the club in so many ways as a player and there is no one who deserves this title more than he does,' Klopp continued. 

'Along with Kenny, Steven is a symbol of this club and it is important that at a moment like this that we remember everything that all of our former players and former managers did to help put us in the position that we are in today.'  

With the Reds out of the Champions League and the FA Cup, they head into the end of the season looking to compound their title success by setting new Premier League records.

With 86 points and seven matches to play, Klopp's side could still officially become the most dominant side in history as they look set to eclipse the 100 points earned by Manchester City two years ago.

The Reds travel to the Eithad Stadium in their next encounter on Thursday, with the former champions ready to give a sporting guard of honour to mark Liverpool's title success.
