Manchester United still flex most social media muscle

Manchester United are trailing Manchester City this season on the pitch but are peerless when it comes to their social media muscle, according to a report published this week.

The Old Trafford giants, who topped Deloitte's Money League in January for the world's richest clubs, also came out top of the Social Network Rankings for the Premier League in 2017.

The report, produced by Newton Insight, ranked England's 20 top-flight according to eight performance indicators across various social media platforms.

United beat Manchester City to first place with Chelsea third, Arsenal fourth, Liverpool fifth and Tottenham Hotspur in seventh place. Huddersfield Town were a surprising sixth with Stoke City bottom of the pile.

City had 29 million, 5.5 million and 5.9 million respectively for the same categories.

United also had most followers of the 20 Premier League clubs on Chinese social media platform Weibo -- 9.2 million.
