Liverpool And Manchester United Officially Have More Fans In London Than Their City

A new study shows that most Manchester United and Liverpool fans are not local supporters and are actually from London.

Casumo went about collecting data through Twitter and took it upon themselves to take a random sample of 50,000 different followers from each Premier League club's account.

From that, they were then able to find out each person's hometown and reveal that, much to the surprise of absolute nobody, Manchester United are the best-supported club in the league.
