Liverpool v Arsenal Original match programme 1989 title decider
Item Number: 5502-2
This rare and highly collectable item of Arsenal memorabilia is an original programme from the 1989 title deciding match against Liverpool.
The final match of the 198889 English Football League season was contested on 26 May 1989, between Liverpool and Arsenal, at Liverpool's Anfield ground.
By sheer coincidence, it was the match between the top two teams in the First Division and the teams were close enough on points for the match to act as a decider for the First Division Championship.
Arsenal needed to win the game by at least two goals to take the title, while Liverpool enjoyed home advantage and had won the FA Cup the previous weekend. Despite being labelled underdogs, Arsenal won 20, with a last-minute goal scored by Michael Thomas the final goal, in the final minute, of the final game of the league season giving them their ninth First Division title and denying Liverpool the chance of a second Double.
The match is considered to be the most dramatic conclusion to a league season in the history of the English game.
The programme is presented in good condition, and is a fine item of Arsenal football memorabilia.
