Fans Reaction To Players Fakes Screams Of Pain Shows Value of Crowds To Premier League

By Chelsea NewsNo Comments

One of the unexpected impacts of fans being locked out of the Premier League was players overacting when challenged. Their pain filled yelps designed to shock refs into decisions.

The lack of fans meant that screams of pain echoed around stadiums and had a much bigger impact on referees.

Apparently, Diego Llorente had not gotten the memo that fans were back.

Llorente tried this with 2,000 Chelsea fans and cried out a falsetto howl of pain in the second half during a challenge with Oliver Giroud.

The referee was not conned, no foul was given.

The home fans took exception, incensed by what was clearly an effort to cheat.

Llorent bounced up pretty quick for someone who sounded like he’d been hit by a mortal blow and that’s when the fun started.

The Chelsea fans mocked his high pitched yelp, with equally high falsetto screams every time he got the ball until the end of the game.

It was quite funny.

As Chelsea sat back and let Leeds have the ball chasing an equaliser he had plenty of touches of the ball and fans in the West Stand (closest to his play acting) took great delight in adding a touch of panto to the game at the beginning of the Christmas season.

TV Missing The Story

Having attended the game but not joined in (my voice is too high for falsetto) it is this kind of detail that can get missed and adds a bit of hilarity and fun.

Whilst this may not be the reaction expected, it is the passion and bit of fun that lockdown games lack.

The moment was missed by many watching at home, who seem nonplussed by the weird screams having missed the context of the incident.

It was great to have football back in some form, but it is the fans that make the game and weird moments like this prove it.

Top Tip – If you are going to scream like Llorente did on a football pitch, make sure you are actually hurt first!

Best Bets for Chelsea Fans for the 2020-2021 Season

By Chelsea NewsNo Comments

Chelsea have not won the Premier League since the 2016/2017 season, and the odds for Chelsea to win the Premier League in the 2020/2021 season are low. There are some interesting bets that Chelsea fans can take advantage of, especially if added into accumulator bets.

The Dual Forecast Bet

The dual forecast bet means betting on two teams to come either fist or second in the Premier League. Paddy Power are offering two interesting bets for Chelsea.

  • Chelsea & Man City – For both teams to finish either first or second the odds are a 9/1. Based on City’s recent performance this is probably not the best bet.
  • Chelsea & Liverpool – This is a good bet to place especially in an accumulator. The odds are 11/2 and there is a healthy chance with City performing so poorly.

Will Chelsea Finish in the Top Six?

This is a good bet to place, again maximising the opportunity by increasing the odds using an accumulator. The odds for multiple teams can make this an interesting bet.

  • Arsenal – 13/10
  • Everton – 1/1/10
  • Leicester – 8/11
  • Man Utd – 8/15
  • Chelsea – 1/10
  • Tottenham – 1/16

Top Goal Scorer and Winner Odds

Choosing the Premier League winner and top goal scorer isn’t an easy bet but there are some great odds for Chelsea fans thanks to Timo Werner.

  • Timo Werner the top goal scorer and Liverpool win the league odds – 22/1
  • Timo Werner the top goal scorer and Manchester City to win the league odds – 35/1
  • Timo Werner the top goal scorer and Chelsea to win the league odds – 45/1

Top 4 Finish Odds

Betting on the top 4 is an old bet and one that was previously easier to gamble on. In recent seasons the top four have changed and predicting the result is harder. Chelsea are expected to be in the top four, but other teams have some interesting odds.

  • Leicester – 3/1
  • Man Utd – 15/8
  • Tottenham – 4/9
  • Chelsea – 4/9
  • Man City – 1/10
  • Liverpool 1/16

Premier League Top Scorer Odds

Predicting the Premier Leagues top goal scorer is a fun bet and in recent years a relatively easy one based on team line-ups. This season is proving interesting with Dominic Calver-Lewin finding great form and the expectations of Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy to be contenders. The Arrival of Timo Werner could upset the betting world if Chelsea keep their form.

  • Timo Werner – 9/1
  • Hueng-Min Son – 9/1
  • Jamie Vardy – 6/1
  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 11/2
  • Mohammad Salah – 9/2
  • Harry Kane – 7/2

There are a huge range of free bets to take advantage off for Chelsea fans, including new betting sites like Vbet, Marathon Bet and have a range of bonuses to take advantage of the odds above.
