After Arsenal FA Cup win – Updated table of most successful English football clubs in history
Who are the most successful English football clubs in history?
After Arsenal won the FA Cup on Saturday, beating Chelsea 2-1, an updated table has been published.
Fair to say that when it comes to looking at the most successful English football clubs in history, ‘history’ is most definitely the key word for Newcastle fans.
Table put together by the excellent Sporting Intelligence:

0 – Liverpool
3 – Man Utd
0 – Arsenal
1 – Chelsea
24 – Aston Villa
0 – Man City
12 – Tottenham
25 – Everton
51 – Newcastle United
18 – Blackburn
40 – Wolves
30 – Forest

When Newcastle United won their last domestic trophy in 1955, that FA Cup win made NUFC the second most successful of English football clubs at that point.
Then 19 years later, ahead of the FA Cup final in 1974, at that point Newcastle United and Liverpool had won the same number of trophies.
