Last year we looked into the Instagram prowess of each premier league side, in this post a year later we have seen which teams have seen the biggest growth and if on pitch success was a factor or not.
A quick look at the table below show a number of things, we have ordered by the growth percentage but this may not be the best way to reflect true growth as teams like Arsenal, Chelsea & Manchester United appear in the bottom half even though each of these clubs gained over 2 million followers in the year.
Two clubs that stands out on this list are Liverpool & Tottenham who grow by over 50% and gained over 5 million & 1 million followers in the process. Both sides had a good season finishing in 3rd and 4th place.
