Ronaldo, Salah, Silva, Pogba And Mata: The Premier League Social Media XI

Dangerous men: Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah lead the way on social media.
Dangerous men: Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah lead the way on social media.

Following on from our ground-breaking Instagram study, BettingOdds.com has delved further into the social media mine. Examining both Instagram and Twitter, as well as both players and clubs, we have provided a definitive ranking of the most powerful football institutions in the Premier League based on social media influence and greatest football followings in England.

Of course, we all know that Cristiano Ronaldo rules the roost here, the man being the most followed personality on the planet on Instagram, and he is partially responsible for Manchester United’s gigantic numbers, but even without the Portuguese in consideration, the numbers across the Premier League are simply enormous, thanks to the likes of Liverpool and Mohamed Salah, and Ronaldo’s comrades, Paul Pogba, David de Gea and Juan Mata.

In total Manchester United’s social media following is closing in on the 1 Billion mark.

The results are the combined player and club totals across Twitter and Instagram. For an individual to be included in the study, a player must be legitimised with the Instagram verified sticker (the infamous blue tick) or cited by the club. We have broken the report, firstly into the top 20 most followed Premier League players on Twitter, the Premier League clubs ranked by number of followers of both player and club across Twitter and Instagram, plus provided a Premier League XI of the Premier League players with the most social media power. Take a look below.

All figures are correct as of March 2, 2022.
