Is this the Premier League’s biggest gamer?

We know footballers have a lot of spare time on their hands.

When training's over, they have to find something to do. Something to relax, to take their minds off the pressure of top-level football.

Golf is a popular choice, as is shopping. These days, many go for gaming.

It's understandable, really. It scratches that competitive itch so many have but there's little risk of injury. It's certainly safer than spending the afternoon on a tennis court or ski slope.

Few Premier League footballers seem to enjoy gaming quite as much as David Meyler, the Hull City and Ireland midfielder. A quick glance at his Twitter and Instagram accounts reveal that, when he's not grafting out on the grass, he's gaming. He even has his own Twitch and YouTube channels.

In the past, Meyler has used his Twitch channel - with close to 20,000 followers - to raise money for charity.

FIFA 17 on PS4 is Meyler's game of choice but it appears he's also a keen PC gamer.

The 27-year-old recently took delivery of this mean machine from gaming PC specialists Overclockers.

Meyler has given fans a giggle  by revealing he uses Alan Pardew as his team manager on FIFA 17. Meyler was on the receiving end of a headbutt from Pardew in an infamous touchline clash in 2014.
