For only the second time, the two clubs that could win the Championship, played each other on the final day of the season. Arsenal played Manchester United at Old Trafford needing a win by seven goals to become Champions. Manchester United won 6 - 1.

Huddersfield Town were relegated after 25 consecutive seasons in the Top Division.

Newcastle United became the first club in the 20th Century and the first since 1891 to win the FA Cup in consecutive seasons. The final was a repeat of 1932. This is the first time that the two FA Cup finalists are the winners from the previous two seasons.

The first floodlit match was played on 19 September 1951 : a friendy between Arsenal and Hapoel (from Tel Aviv) at Highbury. Arsenal won 6 - 1.
