Arrest table from season 2013/2014 in England

Manchester United may have slid down the Premier League pecking order but they top the table for having the worst-behaved fans.

The club had the most supporters arrested in the top flight last season: 112.
This put them far ahead of rivals Manchester City, in second with 71 arrests, and knocked Newcastle off the top spot.
It came as the Red Devils slumped to 7th in the table following Sir Alex Fergusons 26-year reign at Old Trafford.
13 arrests were for violent disorder, 19 for public disorder, 3 for missile throwing, 1 for pitch invasion, and 3 for ticket touting. Five were for use or possession of fireworks or flares, 1 for breach of banning order, and 2 for offences against property.

In the Championship, Leeds United came top with 91 hooligans collared, in League One Wolverhampton Wanderers led with 55 and Bristol Rovers were out in front of League Two with 57.

However, overall football arrests fell to 2 273, the lowest on record and almost half the 4 162 pinced in season 2000/2001 according to Home Office figures.

The Football Supporters Federation said: “We welcome the downward trend, but arrest figures tell a partial story as not all those fans will have been charged.”

The number of football banning orders was also down – with Newcastle having the most in the Premier League at 127.
