A sign of success in football is not just related to the number of new fans attracted.

But success often comes with detractors and after a dozen years of Roman Abramovich fuelled success, Chelsea can now add the most hated club in the Premier League crown to the "trophies" they have won.

The Mirror conducted a poll of almost 10,000 fans to work out who they loved and hated the most.

Chelsea came out on top in the most hated category, beating Manchester United to top spot.

Liverpool were third and Manchester City fourth, just ahead of Arsenal who might be glad to miss out on a Top 4 trophy for once.

The three fan groups who appear to hate Chelsea the most are (in the following order): Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool.
