Manchester United fans have been criticised in the past for the lack of noise they generate during some matches at Old Trafford, but things have clearly improved in that respect under Louis van Gaal.
In fact, the Red Devils' faithful can now proudly proclaim to be the loudest set of supporters in the Premier League, after recording a higher decibel level during Saturday's match against Crystal Palace than any of the other nine top-flight matches that took place over the weekend.
United fans - and a couple of thousand from Crystal Palace - worked in unison to record a decibel level which came in at 84 out of 120.
Quieter at Anfield
This figure was significantly higher than four matches which recorded a 78 decibel rating - Southampton v Leicester City, Sunderland v Everton, Tottenham v Stoke and West Brom v Newcastle United.
Arguably the biggest match of the weekend took place at Anfield, between hosts Liverpool and league leaders Chelsea, but noise levels only reached 77 decibels in that match.

Liverpool fans are famed for the noise they generate at Anfield - particularly on European nights - but these stats suggest the locals on Merseyside are less awake on Saturday lunchtimes.
Arsenal fans quieter
Swansea City recorded a dramatic win over Arsenal on Sunday, and noise levels only reached 76 decibels at the Liberty Stadium, which was the same figure during the Saturday afternoon clash between Queens Park Rangers and Manchester City at Loftus Road.
The last two on the list, perhaps somewhat unsurprisingly, were Burnley v Hull and West Ham v Aston Villa, which finished 0-0.
Larger crowd at Old Trafford
While Manchester United fans might be pleasantly surprised by these latest findings, there is a significant caveat which must be noted.
A huge 75,325-strong crowd were packed into Old Trafford for the Saturday afternoon clash between the Red Devils and the Eagles, meaning 30,000 more people attended that match than the game with the second-highest attendance: Liverpool v Chelsea.
Manchester United introduced a dedicated singing section to help improve the atmosphere at Old Trafford earlier this year. The plan attracted much criticism from United fans and non-United fans alike, but it does appear to have made a positive impact at the home of the 20-time English champions.
Should other clubs also introduce dedicated singing sections at their grounds to improve atmospheres? Have your say in the comments' section below.
