Arsenal have a romantic history with Liverpool, even when both / either have been in the relative doldrums. This is the club’s record win at Anfield, the margin the biggest in any competition.
Having ceded their throne tamely in 1989-90, Arsenal made a determined effort to become regain their title. For the second time in three seasons, Anfield was set as the battleground for the match which would decide the outcome of League title. Liverpool had to win as the grip of their dominance on English football loosened, Arsenal were obdurate opponents built upon the bedrock of a defence which would be breached only 18 times in this particular campaign.
Once more, Arsenal came, saw and conquered.
