Premier League’s luckiest team voted for as Man Utd and Liverpool feature

Premier League fans have voted Manchester United are the luckiest team in the top tier – by quite a distance.

Liverpool lagged behind in second but also had a considerable share of the votes.

The likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City also appeared high up the list – as did Aston Villa in a surprising twist.

In a vote conducted by Ladbrokes, it found a whopping one in four supporters believed United were the luckiest team in the Premier League.

It comes after a season where the Red Devils were awarded a penalty every 2.85 games.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side finished third in the Premier League, though they were struggling for form prior to January.

The arrival of Bruno Fernandes in the winter transfer window helped their fortunes – as did a number of refereeing decisions.

The Portugal international has netted eight spot-kicks already during his time at Old Trafford, out of 12 goals.

Elsewhere, 18 per cent of fans voted for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, while West Brom got the least with 0.5 per cent.

Villa feature in sixth, sandwiched between Arsenal and Leicester with 5 per cent.

It might be down to the fact they were the benefactors of a 'no-goal' against Sheffield United, which would have seen the Blades go 1-0 up.

Hawk-Eye had malfunctioned and the referee did not get the usual flashing goal sign on his watch.

The resulting 0-0 draw saw them survive relegation by a point – with Bournemouth facing the drop instead.

The footballing gods were clearly smiling down on Villa on that day.
