History

Liverpool won the Championship for the 12th time. They also completed a run of 8 season finishing in the top two of the League, setting a new record.

Nottingham Forest became the second English club to retain the European Cup. They remain the only European Cup winners to have won that trophy more times than their national League Championship.

They also became the first club to play in three consecutive League Cup finals.

Arsenal became the first club since 1888 to play in three consecutive FA Cup finals.

West Ham United won the FA Cup becoming the third second level club to do so since 1973 and 1976. This was the third all-London FA Cup final.

After their FA Cup final defeat, Arsenal lost the Cup Winners Cup final on penalties.
