Liverpool ended their 30-year wait for the Premier League title last season when Chelsea defeated Manchester City to secure the Reds' title triumph mathematically.

The left-back sent a picture of him in a Chelsea kit on their WhatsApp group much to the dismay of the rest of the squad.
In an exclusive excerpt taken from his new book Robbo: Now You're Gonna Believe Us by the Liverpool Echo, Andy Robertson revealed that he sent a selfie of him wearing a Chelsea kit before turning up for the celebrations. The left-back had swapped shirts with his fellow Scottish international, Billy Gilmour after their FA Cup tie in March. Andy Robertson reveals that the entire Liverpool squad sent him a series of abusive messages and emojis.
The 26-year-old wrote that as the team were getting ready for a barbecue and were preparing for what could be a title winners' party, he pulled off a Chelsea shirt from his wardrobe. Andy Robertson said that everyone of a Liverpool persuasion would be supporting Chelsea as a point for the Blues would have crowned Liverpool Premier League champions.
