The team to be in the top flight of English football and not win the cup is Aston Villa.
Leicester City of course
Everton Aston villa and man utd
Arsenal has been in the top flight the longest. Arsenal (1919) 90 years Everton (1954) 55 years
There are a great number of teams that have never been in the top flight. English football has over 140 leagues from which teams can (in theory) rise all the way to the top level.
Arsenal is the only club that is not been relegated. Point of order!! yes they have!! they were relegated season 1912/13! and the only reason they got back into top flight football was by a bung!! they are also the only team to have been promoted not on football merit!! bet mr wenger doesnt know all that!!
Arsenal then Everton
Liverpool ========================= Liverpool have been relegated. The only team never relegated from the top division are Wigan Athletic. Promoted in 2005. Currently in danger of relegation.
