The 1986 FA Cup Final was a Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton at Wembley. The match was played seven days after Liverpool had secured the league title, with Everton finishing as runners-up. Liverpool went on to win this match 3–1, with two goals from Ian Rush, and one from Craig Johnston after Gary Lineker had put Everton ahead in the first half.

This match is notable in that it was the first FA Cup Final to feature a team without any English footballers in the starting lineup. Even the Cardiff FA Cup sides of 1925 and 1927 had an English player, Billy Hardy. However, Liverpool did name an English player as substitute, Steve McMahon (who did not come on in the game), and did start with English-born Mark Lawrenson – who had opted to play for the Republic of Ireland due to his ancestry.

Liverpool had already won the First Division title, and so completed the double. Everton had also – narrowly – finished runners-up to Liverpool in the league. However, the ban on English clubs in European competitions imposed after the previous season’s Heysel disaster remained in force, meaning that Everton were unable to compete in the 1986-87 Cup Winners’ Cup (Liverpool as league champions would have gone into the European Cup).

Notable changes to the Everton side who had been runners-up in the final a year earlier were the absence of goalkeeper Neville Southall due to injury (his place in the team being taken by Bobby Mimms) and new signing Gary Lineker playing in the forward position which had previously been occupied by Andy Gray.

Liverpool, on the other hand, were competing in their first FA Cup final for 12 years, and had no players remaining from the side that had won the 1974 final.
