1989 Liverpool v Arsenal Title Decider - ITV Football Classic



It should have been Cup final day in England, but while the hallowed turf of Wembley remains out of bounds, the BBC are providing an old-school all-day compendium of vintage action on the red button, while Guy Mowbray relives three dramatic finals at 2.15pm on BBC1 (not Wales).

Meanwhile, ITV’s collection of Football Classics continues with the championship decider between Liverpool and Arsenal from May 1989. For Liverpool fans still anxiously waiting on their first league title in three decades, it might not be an easy watch, as the Gunners attempt to pull off football history in a fever-pitch finale soundtracked by a famous goal call from Brian Moore. It really was up for grabs then…


Elton Welsby presents extended highlights of the memorable match at Anfield, which saw Arsenal needing to win by at least two goals to pip their opponents to the title. With analysis from Bobby Robson, reports by Jim Rosenthal and commentary from Brian Moore and David Pleat.
