Arsenal had won the League a week earlier when they beat arch rivals and near neighbours Tottenham and were now in a position to emulate the feat that Tottenham achieved 10 years ago, which was the League and Cup double.

Liverpool spent most of the first half in the Arsenal half of the pitch but failed to put any undue pressure on the Arsenal goal, and the first half ended 0-0. The second half saw Arsenal go close on a few occasions but both sides failed to score and the game went into extra-time.

Liverpool broke the deadlock in the 2nd minute of extra-time with a goal from Steve Heighway. Moments later Bob Wilson made a spectacular save which would of ended Arsenal hopes of emulating Tottenham, but this save rejuvenated the rest of the Arsenal team with the ball in the Liverpool goal area the ball was sent towards the goal by Eddie Kelly and in it went.

Then one of the classic FA Cup goals of all time when Charlie George of Arsenal powered a 25 yard drive and past Ray Clemence into the cup and double winning goal.

Below is a clip of the Charlie George goal that gave Arsenal the double.
