Liverpool won the Premier League title in 2019-20 with seven games to spare, with their status as champions being confirmed on June 25 when Manchester City lost to Chelsea.

However, Jurgen Klopp and Co. must wait a while before they can actually get their hands on the trophy the Merseyside club have been after for three long decades.

So when exactly will they hoist the silverware overhead and where will it happen? Goal brings you all the details.

When will Liverpool lift the Premier League trophy?

Liverpool will be presented with the Premier League trophy in their final home game of the season against Chelsea on Wednesday July 22

The game had been scheduled for July 18, but was rescheduled due to the fact that Chelsea are scheduled to play in the FA Cup semi-final on July 19.  

The trophy presentation day will be an evening fixture, meaning the trophy will be lifted under the lights.

Without supporters in the stadium, Liverpool are working to make the ceremony a memorable one while acknowledging those watching from home.

Captain Jordan Henderson will become the first Liverpool player to lift the Premier League trophy as part of a ceremony that will be held on the Kop.

The club has built a special podium that will be surrounded by fan-made banners, honouring the Reds' most dedicated supporters in the section in which they normally sit.

Henderson and Liverpool's players have been involved in planning the ceremony, which will also include Sir Kenny Dalglish.

Kanye West's song 'All of the Lights' will be played as the players are given their medals, according to The Athletic, while Coldplay's 'A Sky Full Of Stars' will accompany the actual trophy lift.

Will Liverpool be given a guard of honour in their remaining games?

As champions-elect, Liverpool received guards of honour from their remaining opponents, though there is never a guarantee that every club will oblige.

Man City were the first team to face the Reds since the Premier League title was wrapped up and Pep Guardiola's players performed the traditional mark of respect at the Etihad, before dishing out a 4-0 beating.

Guardiola insisted that Liverpool were deserving of the guard of honour but, while Klopp acknowledged that it was "nice" to receive one, it is not something that he is overly concerned with. 

"I wouldn't need it," said the Reds boss when asked about the guard of honour tradition by reporters, noting that it did not appear to be a thing in Germany. "It's a nice gesture, but that's it, pretty much."

Liverpool play Aston Villa, Brighton, Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle United in their remaining matches after securing the title.

Of those games, three will be played at Anfield (Aston Villa, Burnley and Chelsea), with the others being played at the Amex Stadium, Emirates Stadium and St James' Park.

Will Liverpool have a Premier League trophy parade?

It is customary for the Premier League champions to have a trophy parade as a moment of civic celebration, but public health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic mean it is a doubt for Liverpool.

Suggestions point to a small-scale trophy parade involving the Liverpool squad and staff, perhaps at Anfield. A trophy parade incorporating virtual elements such as live streaming and interactive supporter involvement is another option.

However, considering the fact that 750,000 people took to the streets to hail Liverpool's Champions League success, it may prove difficult to dissuade supporters from coming out in numbers, as, indeed, happened on the night the Reds were officially confirmed as champions, and the club will be keen to avoid a repeat.

People gathered en masse that evening, congregating outside Anfield and at various areas around Liverpool, eliciting stern condemnation.

Can Liverpool break the record Premier League points total?

The record Premier League points total is 100 points and it was set by Man City during the 2017-18 campaign.

Liverpool's 2-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates in matchweek 36 meant that the points total is no longer reachable, as the maximum amount of points they are able to accumulate is now 99.
