The Premier League's Biggest Drinking Fans Have Been Revealed

The Premier League's Biggest Drinking Fans Have Been Revealed

Plenty of people like to enjoy a beer whilst they watch the football, although that's not possible in England in the stands, but which Premier League fans consume the most alcohol?

There's two very opposite emotions that are likely to leave us reaching for a pint or three. Either we're trying to celebrate a big win or we're trying to forget all about what we've just seen by drinking enough to wipe our memories.

Which feeling is the dominating one? For me I know I'm more likely to get more frustrated with my team than I am to be over moon with them, but then that's what a life of being an England fan will do to you.

And it feels like frustration might be the emotion that wins out for Premier League fans as the fans who drink the most have had to deal with a season of it.

According to a survey by Footballtips.com of 2,400 UK-based football fans aged 18 and above the fans who drink the most are those who support Everton with Toffees fans consuming on average 43 units a week:

1. Everton - 43 units (on average)

The Goodison Park team started the season with a lot of optimism after a summer of spending and would have been hoping to push the top six as far as they could.

However a difficult start to the season led to them sacking Ronald Koeman in October with the club looking at a relegation battle. It took them about a month of missing out on their top choices before Sam Allardyce took the reigns.

The former Bolton Wanderers boss has taken the team from a fight to stay in the division to being in the top half but fans are not happy with the style and results could still have arguably been better.

Most fans will be happy to finally see Manchester City further down the league, time to get the beers in to celebrate.
