Government report suggests that United fans are worst behaved in Premier League.
The government released their annual report on arrests and banning orders at football games in England yesterday, with Manchester United topping the table, with other major clubs including Arsenal and Chelsea near the top.
Figures do, however, continue to show an impressively low proportion of the fans attending matches as having caused any problems for the police or rival fans, particularly when the figures for non-violent offences are analysed.
The report, which also focused on the number of banning orders imposed on fans of each club, recorded the highest number of arrests for United fans, but these are the rest of the worst offenders:
Chelsea (56 fans arrested)
The report recorded 56 Chelsea have as having been arrested during the period analysed, with the majority being at matches held at Stamford Bridge. The biggest proportion of arrests were for alcohol related offences, but two fans were also arrested for possessing flares or fireworks.
