Liverpool 2 - 0 Arsenal - 17 August 1985 Anfield
This game looked likely to be a tough one. Managed by Don Howe, Arsenal were very defensively able and they were a tough well-organised nut to crack.
However, Kenny Dalglish produced another master-class performance and was highly influential, as Liverpool wore Arsenal down.
Ronnie Whelan and Steve Nicol were Liverpool's goal scorers and the one-dimensional Arsenal never really threatened the Liverpool goal.
Liverpool Team - Grobbelaar, Neal, Kennedy, Lawrenson, Whelan, Hansen, Dalglish, Nicol, Rush, Molby, Beglin. Sub: Johnson.
Arsenal Team - Lukic, Anderson, Sansom, Williams, O'Leary, Caton, Allinson, Robson, Nicholas, Woodcock, Rix. Sub: Davis.
Half Time: 1-0
