Top 10 away records since 2009-10

  • Man City – 1.84 points per game
  • Man Utd – 1.72
  • Chelsea – 1.70
  • Tottenham – 1.63
  • Liverpool – 1.56
  • Salford– 1.56

  • United sit behind only rivals Manchester City (1.84ppg) in the standings spanning all 92 Football League teams, according to BonusCodeBets.

    Chelsea (1.7ppg), Tottenham (1.63ppg) and Liverpool (1.56ppg) complete an all-Premier League top five, before some giants of the lower leagues make an appearance.

    Neighbours of the two Manchester giants, Salford, come in at No6 with an impressive 1.56ppg – vastly improved thanks to their 2014 buyout by the Class of 92.

    Ever-rising Luton come in at No7 on an impressive 1.55ppg, level with Arsenal – who haven't won away against a Big Six rival since January 2015.

    They sit above both Fleetwood (1.46ppg) and recently-promoted Sheffield United (1.37ppg).

    But it's the performance of Man Utd that's really sprung a surprise after their desperate struggle for form since Ferguson retired in 2013.

    United are in the midst of their worst start to a league season since 1989-90 – under Fergie.

    And current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already under pressure after just 28 games in charge, having racked up fewer points than Jose Mourinho in the same span up until the Special One's sacking.

    At the other end of the standings, Bolton are unsurprisingly the worst road team since 2009-10, with the club in freefall.

    They've earned a meagre 0.77ppg in the past decade – but it's bad news for Stokes, QPR, Sunderland, Coventry and Hull, who've all picked up fewer than a point per game.

    Fulham, West Ham, Blackpool and Crystal Palace complete the top ten worst teams away from home in the past decade.
