A new study analysing social media trends have found that Premier League champions Chelsea had the least passionate fans in the top flight last season.
According to the Daily Mail, the study looked at which clubs had the highest and lowest proportion of vocal supporters on Twitter, and found that fans of the Blues were the least involved, while relegated Burnley were by far the most.
Despite supposedly not being passionate enough, Chelsea fans were found to be the joint-third happiest in the league. The study suggested that it was supporters of Swansea City that were the most content in the division.
Meanwhile, Queens Park Rangers were unsurprisingly the unhappiest. However, they were joined in this table’s bottom three by Manchester United, despite Louis van Gaal helping the club return to a position that qualifies them for next season’s Champions League.
And they were joined in the bottom half by Arsenal, despite the Gunners briefly challenging for the title, and adding a second successive FA Cup triumph.
Here are the two alternate league tables in full:
Most Passionate Fans:
20 = Chelsea
20 = Stoke City
18) Manchester City
15 = Liverpool
15 = Swansea City
13) Hull City
11 = Southampton
11 = Tottenham Hotspur
