Study Shows Liverpool Top The Table For The Most-Disliked Club In The Premier League
An unofficial study has found that Liverpool top the table for the most-disliked Premier League team.
FanChants has an archive of over 26,000 chants, so it was only fitting that the website tried to figure out which team was sung about the most in England's top domestic league.
Liverpool have 50 chants being sung against them, which puts them top of the table for the Premier League sides.
The Reds' fellow Champions League finalists, Tottenham Hotspur, have 42 chants against them, Manchester City have 39 and Manchester United have 34.
If we were not talking about the Premier League, then Leeds United would take the top spot from Liverpool as they have 117 chants against them.
Liverpool missed out on the title to City on the final day of the season, but they will want to end their season on a high note by winning the Champions League.
Reds boss Jürgen Klopp has provided an update on the fitness of two of his players -- Roberto Firmino and Naby Keïta -- ahead of next week's final.
"Naby is, I would say, a bit ahead of schedule, but that doesn't mean anything for the final," he said (H/T to the Daily Mirror).
"He is now doing straight runs and all of that stuff, he feels comfortable with 50 per cent intensity and these things -- but there is still a way to go.
"I know about the issues with Guinea and stuff like that; we don't want to keep a player out if he can play -- maybe they think it is like this, but it is not like this.
"For me, it would be good if Naby would be 100 per cent fit and could play the Africa Cup of Nations, to be 100 per cent honest.
"But we don't know, we will see, and we need to work together with their medical department because in the end, a player who is fit -- from my point of view -- who can play, should play for his country.
"If he is not 100 per cent fit, he cannot play. That's how it is. It is not important whether you play for your country or your club.
"That's what we try to make sure. It looks good, very positive and we will see if there is a chance.
Speaking of Firmino, Klopp said on Wednesday: "Bobby looks really good [and] he is now part of training. It was not too long out, but of course, we are still careful and want to make sure nothing happens.
"We have a few days still and want to use them, that's why he is in, out, in, out. Yesterday, he was only playing as a 'joker' [in the small-sided games] but it is good for him, the first step to play football again.
"Today, he was in around about 70 per cent of the session. Tomorrow, he will probably be in completely, we will see, then hopefully it will be fine."
Spurs will have their showdown with Liverpool in the Champions League final at the Wanda Metropolitano on 1st June.
