Chelsea have leapfrogged Manchester United to be voted as the most hated club in English Premier League.

This is according to the results of a survey which asked fans of each club who they disliked and who their favourite teams were.

Interestingly United were top of the table last season, but the Blues have overtaken them to the top spot.

Almost 10,000 fans voted in the survey which was run by the Manchester Evening News.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal make up the top five with Tottenham the sixth most-hated by supporters.

United supporters said they hated City the most, followed by Liverpool and Arsenal but the Red Devils were top of the pile, according to the fans of four Premier League sides.

City, Liverpool, Crystal Palace and West Brom all voted Jose Mourinho’s men as their least favourite club.

Bournemouth came bottom of the table suggesting Eddie Howe’s side made a good impression during their first ever Premier League campaign.

And champions Leicester were in 19th as their fairytale title win struck a chord with football fans far and wide.

The results weighed the opinions of each club equally, making the overall table a fair representation of the view of the average football fan.
