Wednesday morning 9am saw fans discover the match schedule for 2017/18,  with Google now revealing which have been the most searched clubs in relation to Premier League fixtures.

Just over an hour after the fixtures were released, Google named (predictably) Liverpool and Manchester United as the most searched for clubs.

Other obvious clubs in the top grouping and up there in seventh are Newcastle United, just behind Chelsea and ahead of Manchester United.

Interesting to see Huddersfield in 10th, their smaller fanbase must have been very excited!
