History

Manchester United became the fourth club to win the League Championship for three consecutive seasons after Huddersfield Town in 1926, Arsenal in 1935 and Liverpool in 1984.

Coventry City were relegated after 34 consecutive seasons in the Top Division.

Liverpool became the first club to reach three finals in the same season (League Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Cup).

Liverpool won the League Cup for a record 6th time, becoming the first English club to win a domestic final on penalties. Liverpool also became the second club to win both domestic cups beating Birmingham City in the League Cup and Arsenal in the FA Cup. They completed a unique treble by also winning the UEFA Cup, becoming the first club to win a European final with a golden goal.

Liverpool won three trophies in one season for the second time. This was the third time a club has won a treble. This was their record 9th European final.

Liverpool and Arsenal met each other in their third FA Cup final.

Arsenal finished second to Manchester United in the League for the third year running. The two clubs had finished in the top two for the fourth consecutive season. Manchester United completed a run of 10 seasons finishing in the top two in the League, equalling the record set by Liverpool in 1991.

The FA Cup and League Cup finals were moved to a new stadium in Cardiff.
