This came to an end in 2020 when they were finally crowned champions of England.

Currently, Liverpool is considered the best team in the world because of their recent form since Jurgen Klopp took charge as the manager. His team won the Premier League trophy for Liverpool after 30 years and also won the club’s 6th Champions League trophy.
