Chelsea fans will be dismayed to hear they are not highly thought of among the rest of the Premier League fanbase, with a new study suggesting supporters think the Chelsea faithful are the quietest of the major top-flight clubs. The Blues crowd have also been branded posher than their rivals, with the survey revealing exactly what fans think of each other in five key categories.
Chelsea fans have had plenty to sing about in recent years with a Premier League title in 2016/17, an FA Cup triumph the following season and a Europa League victory over Arsenal in May.
This term Frank Lampard has instilled a new sense of optimism around Stamford Bridge with youth team players such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Reece James all establishing themselves in the senior squad.
However, Blues supporters still have a poor reputation among fans of other clubs with a new survey branding Chelsea supporters as the quietest bunch among the Premier League heavy-hitters.
Football match ticket provider LiveFootballTickets.com have researched the most talked about fanbases, identifying the top five most popular teams ranked according to average UK monthly search volumes.

This highlighted Liverpool as the most searched club, followed by Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.
A total of 2,136 Premier League fans – all with allegiances to various different clubs – were then surveyed to share their opinions on each of the top five most searched fanbases.
And when it came to “Who is the quietest?”, Chelsea fans will be devastated to see they garnered 36 per cent of the votes for their noise at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal came a close second with 36 per cent while only one per cent of respondents thought Liverpool were quietest.

Chelsea also topped the charts for the question “Who is the poshest?”, wit the west London club situated in a more affluent area than all their rivals.
However, it is not all doom and gloom for the Blues with Chelsea fans ranked as the least deluded compared to the other four clubs.
Manchester United are miles ahead with 56 per cent of the vote in that category, with rival fans desperate to give the Red Devils supporters a sense of perspective.
Finally, Liverpool fans have been labelled the most arrogant of all fans – with the common judgement being that the Reds are still living off former glories.
