We should not forget Chelsea's contribution in helping the Reds win the title expeditiously by defeating Manchester City at Stamford Bridge to bring joy and jubilation to Liverpool fans.

Let's take a look at the five best moments that helped Liverpool bring the elusive title to Anfield.

1. Liverpool vs Leicester City (5th October, 2019)

This was a highly anticipated fixture and went right down to the wire. The comeback kings of Europe always find the light at the end of the tunnel, and in this case, the light was showered upon the Reds by the VAR.

Brendan Rodgers' side looked to be on course for a hard-earned point at the Anfield stadium before James Milner's injury-time penalty earned a dramatic win over the Foxes. This goal was the 34th time the Reds have scored a 90th-minute winning goal in a Premier League match and maintained their flawless start to the Premier League season.

Sadio Mane put Liverpool FC ahead in the 40th minute before James Maddison's low finish 10 minutes before the stoppage time brought some hope back into the Leicester camp.

When the clock ticked into stoppage time, Leicester City substitute Marc Albrighton brought Sadio Mane down in the penalty box, largely due to a communication breakdown with keeper Kasper Schmeichel, which resulted in a penalty for the hosts after consulting the video assistant referee. Then, a nerveless James Milner converted the spot-kick to bring joy and jubilation in the Reds' camp, while the Leicester manager turned away in despair.

2. Manchester United vs Liverpool (20th October, 2019)

It was one of the most anticipated matches of the Premier League and lived up to its billing at Old Trafford.

The Merseyside were on a roll before this fixture, winning their first seven matches, but dropped points for the first time this season against the Red Devils.

Rashford converted a sublime Daniel James cross before halftime to open the scoring for the Red Devils. Then a Sadio Mane goal was overturned by VAR, ruling that Mané gained possession by playing the ball with his arm, and the Reds were unable to score past David de Gea.

Then Adam Lallana came in as a substitute in the 71st minute for Jordan Henderson and turned the tide for the Reds with a brilliant finish in the 85th minute to salvage a draw for the Reds.

Liverpool's left-back, Andrew Robertson, put in a delicious cross into United's box, and Lallana slipped past the defensive line for a cheeky tap-in at the back post. It was a brilliant opportunity for Lallana to get his career back on track and did not disappoint Jürgen Klopp with his creativity and energy on the field.

This late equalizer kept Liverpool FC unbeaten and preserved their undefeated streak in the competition.

3. Aston Villa vs Liverpool (2nd November, 2019)

This match had an Aston Villa victory written all over it. But the Reds, out of nowhere, snatched a victory from the jaws of defeat at Villa Park.

The last 10 minutes of the game turned the tide against a defiant, robust Aston Villa team. The Claret and Blue army were leading 1-0, thanks to a goal from Trézéguet, in the 21st minute of the match. He also became the first Egyptian to score for Villa in the Premier League. They were led by a solitary goal till the 86th minute and were on course to register a huge upset in the season.

Then a Sadio Mané cross was headed in by Andrew Robertson to level the scoring for the visitors. With a minute of stoppage time remaining, an Alexander Arnold near-post corner kick was headed in by the man of the hour, Sadio Mané, to win it for the Reds and to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

The entire stadium was shell shocked and the final whistle sent Villa players crumpling to the grass in dismay. This goal ignited wild celebrations among the traveling players and fans.

4. Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Liverpool (23rd January, 2020)

Wolves’ record against the Premier League's créme de la crème is unmatched in virtually every department.

They are a different side altogether when they face the Premier League's top six teams and fire on all cylinders with the physique of Adama Traoré and the guile of Raúl Jiménez.

The emerging Wolves gave the PL table toppers a stern examination till the dying moments of the game before Roberto Firmino struck late on to earn a hard-fought 2-1 win at the Molineux stadium.

Wolves used the width of the pitch with Coady’s long balls and Adama Traoré latched onto the loose balls like a running beast.

Jordan Henderson put the Reds ahead in the 8th minute with a header before Raul Jiménez converted a sublime Traoré cross to level the scoring. Liverpool were denied goal-scoring opportunities for the most of the game and had to dig in deep. Then in the 84th minute, Roberto Firmino put the ball into the back of the net to seal the victory for the Reds.

After this victory, Liverpool FC were guaranteed safe from relegation (Needless to say, they won the Premier League after all) and the fans started partying on the streets on Merseyside.

5. Liverpool vs Crystal Palace (24th June, 2020)

It was a behind closed doors masterpiece from the Reds, trashing Crystal Palace 4-0 at the Anfield stadium.

After the restart of the Premier League, Liverpool FC were authoritatively rampant against Palace after stuttering in a 0-0 draw with Everton. This victory helped the Reds gain one hand on the trophy.

Alexander Arnold's stunning free-kick and Mo Salah's perfect finish doubled the lead for the hosts before halftime. Fabhinho marked his 50th Premier League appearance for the club in style—his long-range sniper made the scoreline read 3-0 before Mane converted a perfect Salah assist to take the Reds within touching distance of the elusive title.

It was an irresistible performance from the men in red and was arguably the best counter-pressing behind closed doors. This victory marked their 23rd successive home league win, three ahead of Manchester City's record of 20 home victories between 2011 and 2012.

Crystal Palace failed to record a single touch in the opposition box, which showed Liverpool's utter dominance and hunger for the Premier League title. This feeling would've been incredible with 55,000 people in the stadium and emotions that would have been there in the stadium.

Liverpool FC had waited a long time for this moment and worked hard for this over the last few years as a team. This is what they've dreamed for years and were successful in ending the 30-year league title drought with the performance of a lifetime throughout the season.
