The cheapest pint in the Premier League is at champions Manchester City and their arch-rivals Manchester United have one of the most expensive.
A survey has taken data from across the 20 teams and found the two Manchester clubs are some distance apart when it comes to the price of a tipple. Citizen fans at the Etihad Stadium pay £3.40 for a pint of lager to enjoy when taking a break from watching Pep Guardiola's scintillating side, while just over six miles to the west, supporters have had to fork out £5.10 for a beer at Old Trafford, where United limped to a sixth place finish last term.
But the most expensive pint was found at the Amex Stadium, with Brighton charging £6 for a pint, as can be seen in the list below. The average cost for the coming season is £4.09, according to the casino website Top10Casinos. "Not only do City fans see some of the best football, their pint is cheaper too," they said. "United and Brighton fans must be wondering where it all went wrong."

It's not been the best build-up to the season for United – despite a 4-0 friendly win over Liverpool – with the Red Devils' determined move for Frenkie de Jong taking longer and longer. They have had their bid of an initial £63million accepted by Barcelona for the midfielder – and it is thought another £8m will be coming in add-ons and bonuses.
Senior club figures travelled to Barcelona to try to push through a deal for the star and they were seen at a restaurant in the city.
Do you think De Jong will end up at Man United? Let us know in the comments section below.
However, the Dutch player's dispute with Barcelona over deferred wages is threatening the move at this point, while there have been widespread reports in Spain that the Catalan side have told De Jong he must depart for financial reasons.
Is it thought that United do have alternatives should their move for De Jong fail but they are prepared to wait and see how things unfold, even if that goes beyond the end of the window.
