Wednesday 30 April 1986

Liverpool’s grip on the First Division Championship tightened today as they beat Leicester City 2-0 at Filbert Street, with their nearest challengers Everton losing 1-0 at Oxford Utd.  Thus their game in hand was effectively spent.  Theoretically, West Ham were still in with a shout as they beat Ipswich to leapfrog the Toffees into second place.

However, if Liverpool beat Chelsea on Saturday 3 May then their 16th League Title would be secured.  The top of the table reading, as it did, Liverpool P(41)-Pts(85)-GD(51), West Ham 40-81-35 and Everton 40-80-39.
