Jose Mourinho may have said its harder to play at home - but it seems that is the case for everyone.
Plenty of reasons for a perceived dip in Premier League match atmospheres have been suggested, from ticket prices, to the prawn-sandwich-brigade and enforced sitting down.
But it would seem that the advantages of being at home has been steadily declining for many years.
In the first season following the Second World War, 1946-47, home sides in the top flight won 50 per cent of their games.
Seven years later in 1953-54 the home win ratio reached its post war peak of 55 per cent of games.
In the 1950s as a whole the win ratio stood at 51 per cent of games.
It was exactly the same in the 1960s.
The swinging sixties did see large swings in home win percentage.
It peaked in the 1964-65 season at 54 per cent, and bottomed out in 1969-70 at just 44 per cent.
In the 70s, the home win ratio dropped to 49 per cent of games and stayed the same in the 80s.
The Thatcher years also saw large swings in home win percentage.
In 1982 the win ratio was 55 per cent, whereas in 1988-89 it was as low as 41 per cent, the lowest in the entire post-war era.
However, home advantage seemed to drop to its lowest point in the 90s.
In the decade as a whole home sides won just 46 per cent of their games.
The 2000s saw home win ratio climb slightly to 47 per cent, but in the current decade the home win ratio is back to 46 per cent of matches.
