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.
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.
(see, Bournemouth fans are HOT STUFF)
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
3. Norwich City
4. Manchester City
5. Swansea City
6. Newcastle United
7. Aston Villa
8. Leicester City
12. West Ham United
14. West Bromwich Albion
15. Crystal Palace
16. Tottenham Hotspur
17. Stoke City
19. Manchester United
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.
I didn't know Rafa Benitez was a Newcastle United fan!! He looks embarrassed by that fat guy with the tattoo though. pic.twitter.com/AiRrccnK1x— Geoff but not really (@Rich__I) October 26, 2013
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
