Manchester United Have The Best Chants In The Premier League, According To Study

They didn't have the best of seasons, but at least Manchester United fans have something to shout about ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

According to, United take top spot when it comes to the quality and quantity of their chants.

In fact, they are miles ahead of the competition.

The website claim the club have 543 songs, including Ole's At The Wheel, Late In May 1999 and United Road: Take My Home among many others, picking up 664 points in total.

Newcastle United come in second with 584 points, while Arsenal and Chelsea make up the top four.


So how does the study rank the above teams?

"'Based on a calculation that determines which teams have the most songs submitted to their team's library." they claim, via GiveMeSport.

"It takes into account the quality of the songs too - some songs score more than others, for example a classic anthem would score more than a song where fans are chanting a player's name over and over."
