Manchester United were determined not to repeat their mediocre display against Southampton in the 1976 FA Cup Final, while Liverpool came to Wembley with every hope of achieving a thrilling hat?trick of successes ? League Championship, FA Cup and European Cup.

Liverpool played like the complete team, with neat flicks and pushes alternating with long sweeping passes out to the wings. For all their midfield pressure, Liverpool rarely looked like scoring in the first half, which finished goalless, though Stepney had been forced to make an unorthodox save with his foot from Kennedy’s goalbound header.

The skills of the first half were replaced by the thrills of the second. Within five minutes Greenhoff had flicked Mcilroy’s pass over Hughes to give Pearson the opportunity to shoot past Clemence ?a real body?blow to Liverpool.

Yet, like true champions, Liverpool bounced back with an equalizer only two minutes later. Jones advanced down the left and centred to the edge of the penalty?area, where Case swivelled to hit a magnificent half?volley high into the net to Stepney’s left.

An untidy?looking goal three minutes later won the match for United. Macari’s shot, going wide, struck Greenhoff’s side and looped into the net.
