On this day 1989, Best ever EPL finish!

On this day 1989, Arsenal beat title rivals Liverpool at Anfield on the final matchday to win the league title. Arsenal traveled to Liverpool - six weeks after Hillsborough - for a title decider that few thought they could win. Arsenal had to win by 2 goals, it took until the 91st minute before Michael Thomas scored the decisive goal.

Liverpool fans were confident, “Knowing” the league was won (for Liverpool even a 0-1 loss would have secured title), They watched Arsenal score the second Championship Winning Goal in the dying seconds of the match, their heart sinking, eyes unbelieving, bodies shriveling to the ground.

A best ever finish to the league.
