The 1950/51 English League Division 1 was won by Tottenham Hotspur, a side who had claimed promotion the previous season from the 1949/50 English League Second Division. Tottenham the 1950 English League Division 1 champions were inspired by a team that included future World Cup winning England manager Sir Alf Ramsey, Wales national team captain Ron Burgess and future Tottenham manager Bill Nicholson who took the reigns at Spurs during the 1958/59 English Division 1 season. Everton and Sheffield Wednesday were relegated to the English League Second Division. Everton would remain in division 2 until earning promotion by coming second in the 1953/54 English Division 2, Sheffield Wednesday regained First Division status the subsequent season claiming 1951/52 English League Division 2 championship.

The 1950/51 Football Writers Association player of the year was Harry Johnson of Blackpool who had inspired Blackpool to third place in the English 1950 First Division that season. Blackpool also produced the leading league goalscorer that season with Stan Mortensen scoring thirty to top the statistic charts for the 1950 English Division 1 season, Stan Mortensen was an integral part of the Blackpool team and he went on to score a hat-trick at Wembley in the 1953 English FA Cup Final, which was dubbed the 'Matthews' Final after Blackpool and England legend Sir Stanley Matthews.
