Managed by Bill Nicholson, the stars of that Spurs team included Danny Blanchflower, Dave Mackay, Cliff Jones, Les Allen and Terry Dyson. Seven clubs have completed the double of the FA Cup and the Division One/Premier League title – Manchester United and Arsenal (three times each), Chelsea, Preston North End, Aston Villa and Liverpool.
