A night of fireworks at Anfield was complimented by some stunning goals in Liverpool's 5-3 win

Liverpool set up their trophy presentation as Premier League champions with a thrilling 5-3 win over Chelsea to deny the Blues sealing their place in next season's Champions League.

On a night of fireworks outside Anfield, Naby Keita, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Georginio Wijnaldum scored absolute crackers to give the champions the lead before Olivier Giroud pulled a goal back just before half-time.

Jurgen Klopp's men looked to be cruising when Roberto Firmino's first league goal at Anfield this season made it 4-1 early in the second half.

The introduction of Christian Pulisic transformed Chelsea on the hour mark as he set up Tammy Abraham then smashed home himself into the top corner to cut the deficit to a single goal before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gave Liverpool breathing space six minutes from time.
