With Arsenal winning the League and FA Cup double in 1970/71 and declining to take part in the Charity Shield, there was something of a gap as far as Charity Shield participants were concerned.  The gap was filled by  1970/71 Second Division champions, Leicester City, and 1970/71 FA Cup beaten finalists Liverpool.

Leicester City:  P Shilton, S Whitworth, D Nish, R Kellard, J Sjoberg, G Cross, J Farrington, A Brown, R Fern, J Sammels, L Glover (sub: M Manley).    

Liverpool:  R Clemence, C Lawler, A Lindsay, T Smith, L Loyd, E Hughes, I Callaghan, A Evans (sub: J Toshack), S Heighway, R Graham, B Hall (sub: P Thompson).
