The Blizzard: Liverpool 0-2 Arsenal, 1989

For anyone who thinks the 2012 Aguero goal was the most startling finish to a top flight season, you’ve not looked back at the final day of the 1988/89 First Division. That’s where we are heading on today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard.

We’re joined by Amy Lawrence, journalist for The Athletic and author of 89: Arsenal’s Greatest Moment, Told in Our Own Words. She’s the perfect person to talk us through Liverpool 0-2 Arsenal, the title decider that came after every other English professional side had already finished their season. We discuss the game’s connection to the Hillsborough disaster just six weeks before, and the feeling of dread around the Arsenal camp leading up to a clash with their title rivals. Listen on for the story of one of the most dramatic matches in the history of the game in this country.
