  • Liverpool clinched the title vs. Chelsea. It was Alan Hansen's first title as Reds skipper: "That was one of the great days. We had a horrific away record at Chelsea and when the fixtures came out at the start of that season everybody was saying 'imagine us having to go to Chelsea on the final day and win the championship', which of course is what happened. "When Everton beat us at Anfield we were 13 points behind them and then we came up with this incredible run and won something like 12 games out of the last 13. We went to Chelsea and our confidence was high. It was typical Dalglish, taking the ball on his chest and the next thing it's in the back of the net. To win the championship in his first season as player-manager, especially after being so many points behind at one stage, was terrific."
