According to data from LiveFootballTickets.com, supporters forked out £697.64 on fuel and £240 on tickets to see West Ham beaten eight times away this season.

This is the eighth highest amount in the list with AFC Bournemouth spending the most on petrol and tickets to see their team lose away this season - £1,194.30.

Liverpool supporters spent the least amount of money with a total of £42.96 on petrol and £30 on tickets as they have lost just one away game this season - and they’re also unbeaten at home.

Stefan Balkenende, spokesman for LiveFootballTickets.com said: “Local supporters personify the spirit and culture of their football club.

“Their dedication to all matters regarding their team’s progress throughout the season is represented by them committing a significant amount of time and money going to matches. This includes travelling up and down the country to attend games.

“This research highlights the money supporters have essentially ‘lost’ from their Premier League teams away woes – with some fans feeling more of a pinch on their wallets than others”.

Wins and draws from away fixtures were not included in the research.
