On this day in 1977 Liverpool lost out on the FA Cup to Manchester United.

No joy at Wembley for Bob Paisley’s Redmen who lost out on the prospect of completing a treble of the First Division, European Cup and FA Cup. A hectic five minute period in the second half saw all the goals of the match, United taking the lead through Stuart Pearson only for Jimmy Case to equalise a minute later. The scoreline didn’t stay at 1-1 for long though and United took the lead once more just three minutes after the equaliser, Jimmy Greenhoff netting the deciding goal in a 2-1 loss for Liverpool.
