Manchester United now have the second-tallest squad in the Premier League as Jose Mourinho continues his makeover of the side.

United’s three major summer signings to date are all comfortably over six feet tall, with Nemanja Matic standing at 6ft 4in, Romelu Lukaku 6ft 3in and Victor Lindelof 6ft 2in.


Their arrivals take the average height of United’s players to around 6ft 1in, on a par with the tallest sides in the Premier League.

To enable a more precise comparison, a conversion to metres and centimetres is necessary – United’s average is 1.845 cm, just a couple of millimetres shorter than West Brom – whose manager Tony Pulis is noted for his adherence to a physical style of play – and a millimetre taller than Crystal Palace who rank third.

Four further Premier League teams currently have average heights of six feet (1.829 cm) or above – Watford, Stoke, West Ham and new boys Huddersfield.

Tottenham (1.822 cm) and Chelsea (1.821 cm) are the tallest of United’s title rivals, with Arsenal just behind at 1.819 cm.

Liverpool measure in at 1.811 cm on average while United’s local rivals Manchester City, even after signing six-footers Ederson and Danilo this summer, have the lowest average height in the top flight at 1. 797 cm (5ft 11in).

Here, in the gallery above, Press Association Sport lists all 20 clubs by the average height of their first-team squad in centimetres.
