Liverpool's Torres leads list of Premier League shirt sales

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres' surname was the most popular to feature on replica Premier League shirts printed worldwide last season, reports BBC Sport. It is the second successive season the Spaniard has been top, while Anfield team-mate Steven Gerrard was second in the top 10 list compiled by SportingiD.

Figures are based on the number of official club shirts sold domestically and internationally.

Manchester United's Nani and Dimitar Berbatov both dropped out of the top 10, along with Arsenal's Theo Walcott.

Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo had been second in last season's list but unsurprisingly his name does not appear following his world record transfer to Real Madrid last year.

Manchester United striker Michael Owen featured for the first time alongside Drogba, while Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher and Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez were top 10 re-entries.
