Title trio: Kenny Dalglish, flanked by assistants Ronnie Moran and Roy Evans celebrate winning the League title in 1990, Liverpool’s 18th and last title triumph.

They clinched the league on April 28th with two games to spare, thanks to a 2-1 home win over QPR. After semi-final heartbreak against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup (a side they had beaten 9-0 earlier in the season) they won their final two games to run out 9 points ahead of runners-up Aston Villa.

Liverpool have rarely mounted any kind of a challenge for the title in the following 24 years and have seen Manchester United overhaul their total of 18 triumphs, but all that looks set to change at long last with Brendan Rodgers’ side in pole position to win their first championship of the Premier League era this season.
