Spurs fans need something to smile about following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane earlier this week.

Just as well, then, that they came out on top of the Sport Social Media Index, ranking them as the most engaged Premier League club, in the eyes of PR and social media agency Umpf.

Measuring the performance of each team on their official club channels, across eight different social networks, between 1 August and 30 September, Umpf - along with partners William Hill and Opta - considers three main elements to the methodology, producing a maximum scoring system of 100.

The first element consists of a full analysis of the clubs' social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Vine and YouTube, and considers level of engagement, community growth and diversity of multimedia content.

Element two takes into account the average score marked by a panel of 11 independent judges, while the final consideration flagged up 'Red Card' penalties, for channels guilty of social media malpractice, including duplicate content, failure to use hashtags, idle content periods, as well as spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.

Scroll through the tabs - above or below - to see a full list of Premier League clubs in order of best use of social media, and for more information on Umpf's Sport Social Media Index methodology CLICK HERE!
