Arsène Wenger has won the tournament on seven occasions as Arsenal manager. George Ramsay won the tournament on six occasions with Aston Villa. Two other managers have won the title on five occasions.

James Fielding led Blackburn Rovers to success three consecutive seasons in 1884, 1885 and 1886.[1]

Seventeen men have won the tournament both as a player and as a manager: John Cameron as player-manager in 1901, Peter McWilliam, Billy Walker, Jimmy Seed, Matt Busby, Stan Seymour, Joe Smith, Bill Shankly, Joe Mercer, Don Revie, Bob Stokoe, Kenny Dalglish, Bobby Gould, Terry Venables, George Graham, Gianluca Vialli and Roberto Di Matteo. Cameron and Dalglish are the only two people who have guided their clubs to the title as player-managers, in 1901 and 1986 respectively.

Two managers have won the title with two sides: Billy Walker with Sheffield Wednesday in 1935 and Nottingham Forest in 1959 and Herbert Chapman with Huddersfield Town in 1922 and Arsenal 1930.
