Liverpool Fans Voted Best Home And Away Fans In The Premier League By Rival Fans

There's nothing quite like a rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' before a Premier League or European fixture.

Regardless of who you support, you just have to appreciate Liverpool's magnificent support and to put their atmosphere into perspective, a poll of over 4,000 fans of top flight teams have voted Liverpool as the noisiest fans in the Premier League.

Even Manchester United fans have conceded that Anfield is louder than Old Trafford on a weekly basis, not to mention the fact that the Scousers have the loudest away support.

Back in November, Premier League side Newcastle topped the league for the worst behaved fans in England and Wales for the third time running.

Newcastle fans have been served more banning orders than any other club in the UK, receiving 111 orders, which is actually a decrease on the 124 they received last year and the 132 for the 2014/15 season.

The Premier League club were followed by Wolverhampton Wanderers in second place, with 75 banning orders, while London rivals and Football Factory favourites West Ham and Millwall finished in third and fourth place, receiving a total of 57 and 55 bans, respectively.

Football related arrests have decreased significantly over the past year, with 2017 seeing a 14% drop in arrests, from 1,895 to 1,638 over the last 12 months.
