Michael Owen: Liverpool will go down as one of the best teams in Premier League history.

Liverpool are on track to set a record for most points in a Premier League season.


Former England striker Michael Owen paid tribute to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds after they were crowned champions of the England top flight on Thursday.


Liverpool eventually won their first league title in 30 years after Manchester City failed to secure a win against Frank Lampard’s Blues.


The Merseyside club are 23 points clear at the top of the table with seven matches left to play, and they still have a chance to set a record for most points in a English top flight campaign.


"Quite unbelievable. They're such a good team, it's such a good club, it's been waiting for this moment for such a long time," Owen, who scored more than 150 goals for the club across eight seasons, told Optus Sport.

"Jurgen Klopp, what an absolute legend of a manager he's gone down as. European champions and now they've got the one that they wanted all that time, Premier League champions, it's just what everybody's wanted for such a long time and I'm sure Merseyside is absolutely bouncing at the moment and so it should be.


"The players deserve immense credit, it's been a tough season but they've been far and away the best team, the stats will prove that it'll go down in history as one of the best Premier League teams that we have seen.


"Jurgen Klopp, he's just taken this team to new heights so 30, 40 years ago when Liverpool had great teams, I think Merseyside is unbelievably proud of what they've got now."
