Lee Dixon shows off his Arsenal-inspired teletext mug on Twitter
Arsenal legend Lee Dixon risks the wrath of Liverpool fans after posting a photo of his mug on Twitter
Lee Dixon appears to be the proud owner of the coolest mug in football.
The former England defender tasted plenty of success during his decorated 19-year professional career with Bury, Stoke City and Arsenal.
Dixon won four top-flight titles with the north Londoners in an age before the popularity of the internet and football fans relied on teletext.
And as if any Arsenal or Liverpool fans needed reminding, Dixon took to Twitter to show off his mug which boasted the teletext scoreline from the infamous season finale at Anfield in 1989.

Of course, Arsenal travelled to Merseyside needing to beat Liverpool by two clear goals to win the First Division title, otherwise Kenny Dalglish’s men would be crowned champions.
The Reds appeared to be heading towards an 18th crown despite losing 1-0 after Alan Smith’s opener before Michael Thomas scored a dramatic added time winner.
Dixon went on to win the Premier League title with Arsenal in 1991, 1998 and 2002.
