However, it was not the only trophy that the club lifted during the 2019/20 season. The club lifted the UEFA Super Cup in August before winning the Club World Cup in December.
Impressively, during the whole campaign, the club set record after record. They broke the record for earliest victory with seven games left to go after Man City lost to Chelsea. Also, at one stage Liverpool had a lead of 25 points a record gap in English league history.
Anfield was a fortress for the Reds during the season as they went unbeaten at home and broke the record for most consecutive wins at home. The Reds managed 24 consecutive wins over two seasons (18/19,19/20)
Upon accepting the award Jurgen Klopp said: “I think my team deserves it honestly because they did an incredible job.
“It’s a mix of talent, character, desire and plus the power of the club, which is really a big one. That all comes together so we could become champion and it was a great moment, to be honest.”
Also that evening the club would not just take home the Team of the Year award. Manager Jurgen Klopp won Coach of the Year, whilst Jordan Henderson was voted second in the Sports Personality of the Year award.
Onto the current season and the Reds sit top of the Premier league table with a four-point lead. This squad of players show no sign on slowing down there would be no surprise if the club retained the award next year.
