Arsenal 3 Liverpool 1

The Reds this lost this battle at Highbury by three goals to one.

Arsenal got the game started and in the first half the Reds had Sammy Lee booked. His booking was as much for dissent as it was for slamming the ball away in disgust.

It was stoppage time in the first half before Arsenal opened the scoring and it came from a hotly disputed free kick. Jan Molby conceded the kick which Brian Talbot stepped up to take. He curled the kick in to the top corner of the net and the home side went in at the interval a goal to the good.

Three minutes in to the second half and another disputed goal. Viv Anderson clearly handled the ball in the build up to the goal but it was missed or ignored by ref Tom Bune. Tony Woodcock grabbed the goal for Arsenal. Brian Talbot then made it three nil when he headed home a Viv Anderson cross.

The scoreline could have got worse for the Reds when eccentric keeper Bruce Grobbelaar charged from his goal. Paul Mariner beat the Reds keeper to the ball and shot on goal only to find the ball cleared off the line for a corner. From the resulting corner Arsenal sent a header just over the bar.

The Reds grabbed a consolation goal from Alan Kennedy. He raced forward and played a neat one two with Paul Walsh before slotting the ball home with his un-favoured right foot.
