History

Arsenal became the fourth club to complete the League and FA Cup double, ten years after their rivals Tottenham Hotspur. This was a record 8th Championship.

The FA Cup final was a repeat of 1950.

Leeds United came second with 64 points, the highest number for that position. They reached their third European final. By winning the Fairs Cup, they became the first English club to win a second European trophy.

Burnley were relegated after 24 consecutive seasons in the Top Division.

London clubs did well with Tottenham Hotspur winning the League Cup and Chelsea winning the Cup Winners Cup.
