History of the FA Cup

Arsenal remain the most successful London club in the competition, and the most successful club in the history of the FA Cup.

The Gunners lifted the trophy most recently in 2020, beating Chelsea in the final 2-1 in front of an empty Wembley stadium.

Despite Tottenham’s long 13-year trophy drought, with their last trophy coming in early 2008, they rank fourth for most FA Cups, having won the competition eight times, and being runners up once.

Spurs are tied fourth with Chelsea, who have also won it eight times and come second five times.

In the last two years, they have been runners up on two occasions, losing two years in a row in the final to Arsenal and Leicester.
