Liverpool revealed as top home team in Sky Sports study


Liverpool have won the highest percentage of home games in Football League history, a new Sky Sports study has found.

The Reds have won 61.58 per cent – and only lost 16.09 per cent – of their 2,207 league home games since 1893/94.

That puts them top of the table in England, according to Sky Sports’ analysis of all 190,096 professional games since the Football League was founded 127 years ago. Only the 92 clubs that were in England’s top four tiers last season were included in the results.


Manchester United are the second-strongest home team, winning 61.43 per cent of their home fixtures since 1892/93, while Arsenal finished third with a 59.27 per cent record.

Other notable strong home teams include Reading – who are sixth in the all-time standings after winning 55.18 per cent of their 1,908 home games over the past 102 years – and Leeds. The Yorkshire club may currently play in the Championship but they have the eighth-best home record in England, with a 55.04 per cent win percentage.


Worst home form

The worst home record went to current League Two side AFC Wimbledon with 35.87 per cent. The club was founded in 2002 – after Wimbledon FC moved to Milton Keynes and were renamed MK Dons – and have only had four seasons in the Football League to date.

Morecambe (36.41 per cent) and Fleetwood Town (37.68 per cent) finished 91st and 90th in the all-time table, respectively.

Crystal Palace have the worst home record of current top-flight teams with a 48.64 home win rate since 1920/21.
