A total of 11,318,169 supporters have been present at Premier League matches so far this season, but how do clubs rank according to average home attendances?

We take a look.

Manchester United top the pile with an average of 74,503 in attendance from their 14 Premier League games at Old Trafford (according to transfermarkt). The thrilling 3-2 victory over Southampton earlier this month saw Man Utd break the 1 million barrier this season with 1,043,036 coming in through the doors since the start of August. Current incumbent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to lose a league game in front of the Red Devils faithful, accumulating 14 points from six games.

Unai Emery’s debut season may not have been spectacular by any means, but Arsenal can count on an impressive home record of 13 wins and two draws from 16 games - drawing in an average attendance of 59,888 - with their sole defeat the Spaniard’s opener against Man City.

West Ham, a surprise package perhaps, bag third spot on 57,904 ahead of the likes of Man City, Liverpool, and Spurs. The Hammers splashed the cash in the summer and their fans have been treated to a number of impressive displays, including victories over Man Utd and Arsenal, while they’ve won three home games on the spin for the first time in three years.

Man City are fourth with an average of 54,120 at the Etihad, their home record is unsurprisingly stunning with 45 points from a possible 48 so far. Meanwhile, title rivals Liverpool are just behind on 52,899 with Jurgen Klopp’s men undefeated on their own patch since a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace back in April 2017.

Elsewhere we have Tottenham (52,584), who have now played their last league game at Wembley, Newcastle (50,936), and Chelsea (40,531), while Cardiff lead the way out of the three promoted clubs with a top-flight average gate of 31,180 which is just 68 better off than Wolves.

Bottom of this particular table is Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium which has welcomed an average of 10,521 of supporters per game, although it’s worth remembering that the capacity is only 11,329. However, the Cherries support did witness one of the performances of the season when their side hammered sorry Chelsea 4-0 in January, which at the time was Chelsea’s worst ever Premier League defeat.

Unfortunately, Craven Cottage (24,234) and the John Smith’s Stadium (23,194) look like they will both be hosting Championship games next season.

Speaking of which, it’s worth pointing out that a number of Championship clubs - click here for the full listing - have eclipsed many of their Premier League counterparts when it comes to average attendance figures.

For example, promotion-chasing Aston Villa draw in 35,051 per game, Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds are in close pursuit on 33,676, while 10 other clubs draw in figures which surpass 20,000.
