Liverpool is hoping 2020 will see it end a league title drought that has now spanned 30 years.
On this day three decades ago, Liverpool was crowned First Division champion and it remarkably has not won the English top flight since.
NFL free agent Cam Newton can also reflect on this date in sporting history, given it is nine years to the day since he was drafted by the Carolina Panthers.
Here we look back on some of the most memorable moments from the world of sport to take place on April 28.
1990 - Liverpool's most recent league title is won
On April 28, 1990, Liverpool was crowned English champion after a 2-1 victory over QPR.
It looked like the Reds, which went into its penultimate match of the campaign two points clear of title rival Aston Villa, could be denied when QPR went ahead through a Roy Wegerle header.
But Ian Rush equalised before half-time and a John Barnes penalty had Liverpool on the brink with 25 minutes to go.
At full-time, its victory combined with Villa's 3-3 draw against Norwich City ensured Liverpool was champion for an 18th time.
It meant Kenny Dalglish's side would not see its fate go down to the final day, something it was eager to avoid a year on from the heart-breaking loss to Arsenal.
Few would have believed at that stage there would be a 30-year title drought to follow.
However, Liverpool was on the brink of finally ending that long wait under Jurgen Klopp before the coronavirus pandemic halted the Premier League season.
2011 - Cam Newton number one in star-studded NFL draft
Newton was the first overall pick by the Panthers nine years ago.
The quarterback went on to win the NFL MVP award in the 2015 season but ultimately could not guide the Panthers to Super Bowl glory prior to his emotional departure ahead of the 2020 season.
Having been released by the Panthers in March, Newton remains without a team but is eager to continue his NFL career.
An impressive draft class in 2011 saw Von Miller, who would go on to torment Newton and win the MVP award as the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers at Super Bowl 50, selected at two.
We also saw two star wide receivers enter the league, with A. J. Green taken by the Cincinnati Bengals at four, while the Atlanta Falcons traded up to land Julio Jones at six.
Houston Texans great J. J. Watt was a tremendous pick up at number 11, while the Seattle Seahawks got some incredible value in cornerback Richard Sherman, who was the 154th pick.
