Burnley FC have been named the ‘best-looking squad overall’ in the Premier League ahead of Valentine’s Day

Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud was voted the league’s “hottest” player, but Burnley scooped the title of best looking squad overall from a panel of American women.

Liverpool came in second in the poll, ahead of third-placed Arsenal and Stoke, who take the final Champions League place.

However, Newcastle, Swansea and West Brom have the least attractive squads, according to the 250 women surveyed by Paddy Power, with Joleon Lescott, Gerhard Tremmell and Sadio Mané taking the 298th, 299th and 300th spots in the individual Hot or Not list.

Results for the Hot XI are: Ben Foster, Santiago Vergini, Jason Shackell, Erik Pieters, Paul Konchesky, Jesus Navas, Morgan Schneiderlin, Matty James, Nacer Chadli, Charlie Austin, Olivier Giroud.

And the Not Hot XI are Gerhard Tremmel, Ritchie De Laet, James Collins, Joleon Lescott, Aly Cissokho, Angel Di Maria, Cheick Tiote, Stephen Quinn, Saido Mane, Mario Balotelli, Marouane Chamakh.

Among the “finds” of the research are that divorcees love Danny Ings.

A spokesman for Burnley FC said: “I’m sure the lads will all be flattered when they hear the news.”
