A study by YouGov‘s FootballIndex tracker reveals the UK’s most popular football team with a clear favourite getting 8.3% of the vote.
The YouGov survey was based on 16 different metrics tracking public opinion every day.
As reported by the Daily Mail, these metrics include the public’s perceptions of clubs’ management, players and coaches, fan culture, tradition and their record of success – even the attractiveness of their football.
Members of the public named Premier League champions-in-waiting Liverpool as their favourite football club.
They had 2.3 per cent more than Manchester United who only won 6.0% of the population’s hearts, placing them 2nd.
2019 Europa League winners Chelsea were the next most liked club in 3rd with 3.1%, yet had three times less than Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Manchester City came in 4th with 2.0%, despite storming the league last season with their attractive and free-scoring football.
Arsenal, who haven’t won a trophy since 2017, also saw just 2.0% vote for them as their most favourite club in the United Kingdom.
Tottenham, who have got themselves a lovely new home and have finished in the top four every season since 2016, follow the Gunners with 1.8% of the poll.
Wolves, who have gone from dropping down to League One, to being taken over, returned to the Premier League and now playing European football since 1981, were the UK’s next favourite club – with a rating of 1.5% to place them in seventh.
Newcastle, Everton and Aston Villa round up the top 10 with 1.4% of the votes.
As can be seen Celtic and Rangers didn’t make in nor did any team from the English Football League.
