In the early days Wanderers and Blackburn both had the distinction of winning the cup three years running, and then winning it twice running.

There was then a gap until the 1950s when the current run of winning it in consecutive years began.

Tottenham and Arsenal have done this twice, Newcastle and Chelsea once each.

    Why not just say that Arsenal are the only Premier League team that has retained the FA Cup twice?

    That way they get the achievement all to themeselves.
