Sean Cox was in the thoughts of the Liverpool hierarchy last night after the club won their first English league title since 1990.

The club's CEO took to Twitter after Chelsea's 2-1 win over Manchester City sealed the Premier League title for Jurgen Klopp's Reds, posting 'It’s for Sean Cox, smiling in Ireland right now' as part of a celebratory tweet. Mr Cox of Dunboyne suffered life-changing injuries after being attacked outside Anfield ahead of Liverpool's Champions League game against Roma in April 2018.

Moore followed up with a picture of Sean himself along with the words 'One man in Ireland is loving every moment of this...thinking of you this evening Sean. You'll Never, Ever, Walk Alone.'

The photo of Sean was issued by Support Sean, a group aiming to raise awareness of his recovery process...

Sean Cox certainly wasn't the only Liverpool fan smiling last night and the celebrations are sure to last for quite a while yet. The Reds return to the pitch next Thursday when they are expected to receive a guard of honour from Manchester City ahead of the clash between the Premier League's top two.

You would expect the hangovers to have eased by then...
