LIVERPOOL and Newcastle have crushed the Manchester giants and the London elite in a Premier League table based on the whole away-day experience for fans.
That’s according to new data that homes in on a travel hat-trick – ease of getting there, cost and the social scene.
In other words, cheap bars and a close train station are match-winners in this table, all of which left Treble winners but big chargers Manchester City THIRD BOTTOM.
Liverpool‘s score of 65 out of 100 pipped the 64.3 for Newcastle on top of the pile.
The Reds roared to victory mainly thanks to having the cheapest match tickets – just £9 for the upper main stand.

But it’s Brighton who are bottom by far on 27.5 – 19.8 below south coast rivals Bournemouth.
