The Top Five Rivals Of Each Premier League Team, According To Fans

Football fans across the country have come together to vote for their club's most loved and hated team.

'The League Of Love And Hate' is an annual survey carried out by tens and thousands of supporters from Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two teams.

They decide who is the most popular among their fanbase and who is the most loathed.

According to a recent tweet from Twitter user Chris Whiting, the findings have been released and there are some controversial choices, to say the least.

Starting with the Premier League and it appears Manchester United's three main rivals are Liverpool (88%), Manchester City (66%) and Chelsea (43%) while Leeds and Arsenal make up the top five.

Meanwhile Arsenal's main three rivals are Tottenham (87%), Manchester United (62%) and Chelsea (62%) while Stoke and Liverpool follow behind.

But perhaps the biggest surprise in the table is Liverpool's main three rivals.

Local rivals Everton miss out on gold, silver and bronze medal places as Manchester United (84%), Chelsea (43%) and Manchester City (39%) head the list while The Toffees come in fourth behind Arsenal.

Here is the Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two findings in full.

It has also been revealed in a different survey that Chelsea were the most hated club in the Premier League last season.

Manchester United and Liverpool were close behind Frank Lampard's side, while West Ham and Arsenal made up the top five.

Roman Abramovich has certainly splashed the cash since he bought the club in 2003, so perhaps that's one of the major factors behind people's hatred for the club.

In a survey by The Mirror, they asked fans which clubs they love and hate and it was a close affair, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side receiving 68.1% of the vote while Chelsea edged in front with 68.7%.
