The alternative Premier League table - Bournemouth are top, Chelsea are bottom

Chelsea Costa With Pint

Are Chelsea fans really the ugliest in the country, and are Bournemouth fans really dream boats... we're not sure!

It hasn't exactly been a great week for Chelsea fans, first they have to scrape a draw back from Newcastle United, then they manage to get beaten by Porto in the Champions League.

And we reckon Blues fans won't be too impressed by the fact they have been voted the ugliest Premier League fans by a poll on Match.com

The poll asked 1000 Premier League fans which rival supporters they'd be prepared to be seen stepping out on a date with, and it's not good news for Chelsea fan... but is great news for Bournemouth.

It turns out that Cherries fans may just be the most attractive in the Premier League, with 58% of supporters being happy to date a Bournemouth fan. Their south coast rivals, Southampton, came in a close second, with 57% of fans more than happy to go on a date with a saint. 

Here is the full table, and it doesn't make good reading for Blues or Manchester United followers! 

1. AFC Bournemouth

2. Southampton

3. Norwich City

4. Manchester City

5. Swansea City

6. Newcastle United

7. Aston Villa

8. Leicester City

9. Arsenal

10. Everton

11. Watford

12. West Ham United

13. Liverpool

14. West Bromwich Albion

15. Crystal Palace

16. Tottenham Hotspur

17. Stoke City

18. Sunderland

19. Manchester United

20. Chelsea

It turns out that when it comes to dating and football, you're probably not going to end up with someone who supports a rival team. In fact, a quarter (25%) of Liverpool fans said they would never date an Everton supporter, and more than  22% of Manchester City followers said they would never go out with a United fan.  

In the capital, 22% of Spurs fans said they wouldn't date a Gooner, and in the North East, 15% of Geordies wouldn't go anywhere near a supporter of rivals Sunderland

Kate Taylor, relationship expert for Match, said: “Football might be the beautiful game, but emotions can run high in sport. As we already know, couples with shared interests last longest, so when searching potential dates on Match mobile, it’s quite likely that fellow supporters will tickle your fancy.

"If you do accidentally fall for a rival fan you'll both have to exercise tact during football season. No taunts when your team wins, no sulking when theirs does - and never ask your partner to swap teams for you, or you're sure to find yourself being substituted"

Blimey! While Manchester United are topping the table in the Premier League, they're also topping a table of supporters all fans would not want to date, with Chelsea coming in second. Where are Arsenal, I hear you ask, they're fourth, of course! 

The second table. 

1. Manchester United

2. Chelsea

3. Liverpool

4. Arsenal

5. Newcastle United
