Watford ended Liverpool's lengthy unbeaten run in breathtaking fashion after thrashing the champions-elect 3-0 at Vicarage Road.
Relegation-threatened Watford were superb on their home patch against the Reds and collected a massive but deserved victory courtesy of a brace from record signing Ismaila Sarr and club captain Troy Deeney in the second half.
The shock result marks the first time Liverpool have lost in the league in 44 games - the last loss being the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on 3 January 2019.
It means that they will not be following in the footsteps of Arsenal's 'Invincibles', who set an unprecedented feat in the 2003/04 campaign when they did not taste defeat en route to lifting the title under Arsene Wenger.
There was talk of Jurgen Klopp's side receiving a special gold Premier League trophy if they were able to win a first league title for 30 years without losing a single game.
The European and world champions won 26 and drew just one in their first 27 games but their run of 18 straight victories came to an end in Hertfordshire on Matchday 28 and delayed their title party for a little longer.
