Runners-up Sunderland

The 1984–85 Football League Cup, known as the Milk Cup for sponsorship reasons, was the 25th season of the Football League Cup, a knockout competition for England's top 92 football clubs. The competition name reflects a sponsorship deal with the Milk Marketing Board.

The competition began on 27 August 1984, and ended with the final on 24 March 1985 at the Old Wembley Stadium. The cup was won by Norwich City, who beat Sunderland 1–0 in the final. An own goal from Sunderland's Gordon Chisholm gave Norwich the victory. At the end of the 1984–85 league season both Norwich and Sunderland were relegated to the Second Division.1 There was serious violence and a pitch invasion by some home supporters at the Stamford Bridge leg of the Chelsea-Sunderland semi-final, and although Norwich initially thought they had won a UEFA Cup place, they were denied what would have been their first season of European football by the ban that followed the Heysel Stadium disaster. Norwich eventually played in the UEFA Cup in 1993–94.
