Liverpool crowned loudest fans in the Premiership

Liverpool have taken over from Stoke City as the Premier Leagues nosiest supporters, according to unofficial research by the website Peter's Fan Chants. The Potters have been famously dubbed the Premier League's loudest fans ever since Sky Sports measured the noise levels in every ground in 2008.

On this evidence Stoke can expect to make more noise than Manchester City during Saturday's FA Cup final, Wembley's.

Michael Dennis, Peter's Fan Chants managing director said: "While this survey is not scientific, we have taken a series of measurements on the terraces of each club's home ground and averaged this out across games and the season.

"Contrary to what you might expect with its much larger ground, Manchester City fans are quieter at 71 decibels than Stoke City (83 decibels).

"But Wembley Stadium, acoustically, doesn't help the fans and they sound muted compared to their home ground terraces.

"But because each club is allocated roughly the same number of tickets, both sets of supporters will have a level playing field and the opportunity to demonstrate that they are the loudest."

Full table, according to Peter's Fan Chants:

1 Liverpool 97 decibels

2 Man Utd 94

3 Aston Villa 89

4 Everton 86

5 Blackpool 85

6 Stoke 83

7 Newcastle 82

8 West Ham 81

9 Chelsea 80

10 Sunderland 80

11 Arsenal 77

12 Wigan 72

13 Man City 71

14 Tottenham 70

15 Blackburn 67

16 Birmingham 70

17 Bolton 69

18 Wolves 69

19 West Brom 67

20 Fulham 65
