The 1987 Littlewoods Cup Final was a football match played on 5 April 1987 between Arsenal and Liverpool. The match, played in front of 96,000 spectators at Wembley Stadiummarker, was won by Arsenal 2–1. Ian Rush opened the scoring for Liverpool, before Charlie Nicholas equalised turning in a cross in a crowded penalty area. Nicholas scored the winner in the second half, from a Perry Groves cross. His shot deflected off Ronnie Whelan which diverted the ball past Bruce Grobelaar's outstretched hand. It was the first match that Liverpool had ever lost in which Rush had scored.

Arsenal also finished fourth in the First Division, but were unable to compete in the 1987-88 UEFA Cup as UEFA voted for the ban in English clubs in European competitions to continue for a third season.
