* The Watney Cup was the first sponsored competition played for by Football League clubs and Manchester United played in the first two seasons of the competition. Full details - Watney Cup.

** As a punishment for crowd problems Old Trafford was closed for the first two home League matches of 1971/72. As a result the match against Arsenal was staged at Anfield, Liverpool FC, and the match against West Bromwich Albion was played at the Victoria Ground, Stoke City FC.
