Liverpool's next victory came five years later in 1979 when they beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Wembley. It took them until 1984 to win again when they defeated Southampton 4-0 at St. James' Park.

How are Liverpool so good?

A Winning Tradition Liverpool Football Club is England's most successful top-flight club. The club has won more league titles than any other club except Manchester United, which broke the record only this season. Liverpool has also won the most FA Cups and League Cups of any team.

The story of Liverpool Football Club begins in 1892 when John Houlding acquired a field on Stanley Park in the north end of Liverpool city center and began to practice football there. He sold tickets outside the gate for 2 shillings ($4 today) which attracted many local players who wanted to learn how to play the game. In 1893, an official association was formed with the aim of creating a national soccer league. Teams from around the country played each other to determine the best team in the world. The Liverpool team took part in all their matches but never finished higher than fourth place. In 1898, they finally won the league title after previous defeats had been counted as draws.

In 1900, the club moved into a new stadium called Anfield which had been built by Houlding's son Albert. This was the beginning of an amazing run of success for Liverpool Football Club that has continued to the present day. Over the next few years, they added several more championships to their name before World War I halted professional football for several years.

What has Liverpool won since 1990?

Liverpool went on to win two more Champions Leagues. Their sixth European title was won in 2019 when they defeated Tottenham 2-0. Since winning the league title in 1990, Liverpool has won 14 trophies in all, including two Champions Leagues, the UEFA Cup, the Club World Cup, and two FA Cups.

Overall: 14/19 (74%).

Note: The European Championship winners trophy is shown here as it still remains at Liverpool despite them no longer playing in the league during that time period. If Liverpool had remained in the league then they would have received a third championship medal due to their previous two victories.

They are one of only four British clubs to have won the European Cup/Champions League, along with Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

How many times has Liverpool been runner-up in the Premier League?

Liverpool has finished second in the Premier League three times: in 2002, 2009, and most recently in 2014. Manchester United has won the Premier League trophy the most times, with 18 victories.

The team earned its first league title in 1901, and its first FA Cup victory came in 1965. Liverpool's most successful decade in terms of trophies was the 1980s, when the team won six league crowns, two FA Cups, four League Cups, five Charity Shields (one shared), and two European Cups.

When did Liverpool win their first three trophies?

Liverpool won the League, League Cup, and European Cup in Fagan's first season, becoming the first English club to do it. Liverpool won the European Cup again in 1985, this time against Juventus at the Heysel Stadium. The match was decided by a dramatic last-minute goal by Kenny Dalglish.

They have not stopped since. Liverpool has now accumulated an incredible 49 victories in all competitions, which is second only to Manchester United's 53 wins.

The list of honours is even more impressive when you consider that most of them came before England's Football Association formed a league of its own (the Premier League) in 1992. Before then, British clubs played in the Southern Division or Eastern Division of the old First Division or Second Division depending on how much money they had willing to spend on players.

Only five other teams have won the double, the EPL and FA Cup/League Cup in the same season: Manchester United in 1968-69, Liverpool twice more (1987-88 and 2008-09), Chelsea in 2011-12, and Tottenham Hotspur in 2019-20.

Liverpool has also won the UEFA Supercup twice, in 1994 and 2005. In addition, it won the Intercontinental Cup in 1978. That makes seven major trophies won in the first three seasons after the formation of the club.
