West Ham United were once known as "everybody's second favourite football team".

However that is no longer the case after a recent survey found that the Hammers are the Premier League's fourth most-hated team.

Coming in narrowly behind Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool, who make up the top three, West Ham lead the rest with 47.6 per cent of those surveyed stating they "hate" the club.

The survey was completed by the Mirror and its sister publications, although specific numbers of how many supporters from each Premier League team responded are not recorded.

1. Chelsea 68.7%
2. Man Utd 68.1%
3. Liverpool 52.8%
4. West Ham 47.6%
5. Arsenal 46.2%
6. Tottenham 43.5%
7. Man City 38.7%
8. Cardiff 36.5%
9. Crystal Palace 29.7%
10. Everton 27.0%

11.Watford 24.0%
12. Newcastle 23.5%
13. Wolves 20.1%
14. Leicester 18.9%
15. Southampton 16.3%
16. Brighton 16.2%
17. Fulham 15.0%
18. Burnley 13.3%
19. Bournemouth 10.2%
20. Huddersfield 9.7%
