A YouGov survey which appears in the Sun paints Manchester United supporters as the most confident in the land.
The poll of more than 13,000 supporters of Premier League clubs by the opinion site found 75 per cent of the Old Trafford faithful are betting on Man Utd to claim a 20th top-flight crown.
If a league table was made in which teams were ranked according to how fans rate their clubs’ chances of success, the Red Devils would be streets ahead of Chelsea, their nearest challengers.
Just 58 per cent of Blues supporters believe Andre Villas-Boas will be able to guide his new side to title glory at the first time of asking.
Manchester City fans are third in the optimism table, with one in three convinced Roberto Mancini’s men have what it takes to top the standings at the end of the season.
This leaves fans of Arsenal, who appear to have been deflated after a 2010-11 season which promised so much but delivered so little.
A mere 24 per cent of Gooners believes Arsene Wenger’s squad have enough about them to land the biggest prize in domestic football this season.
