  • Description

    Liverpool gained the necessary one point to clinch the First Division English Football League championship by drawing with Leicester City in a match without score on Saturday (28 April). Liverpool tried hard for goals through individual rather than collective ability, and Shilton in the Leicester goal mouth had to produce saves in quick succession from shots by Keegan, Lloyd and Callaghan.

    When Liverpool tried to apply second-half pressure, Leicester at once consolidated their defence by pulling players back and kept out any Liverpool shots at goal. Liverpool fans saw the title slipping away from them in the 70th minute when Stringfellow for Leicester best Clemence with a downward header from Birchenhall's centre. But the goal was disallowed for off-side.
