Arsenal v Liverpool 2-0 (League match: February 1, 1975)

February 1, 1975
Key note: “Like bacon and eggs, Alan Ball and Liverpool seem to go together and the ex-Everton midfield general is happy to admit: ‘I just enjoy playing against the Reds.’ Not only playing, but scoring goals as well, it seems. Last November he netted twice against Liverpool in Arsenal’s 3-1 win at Anfield and he scored both goals in Arsenal’s 2-0 win at Highbury on Saturday. ‘The goals are just a bonus,’ he said.” (Liverpool Echo: February 3, 1975)
