Empty stadium allowed us to hear exactly what Chelsea and Man City stars were saying last night

Fans could listen into conversations during Chelsea v Man City

Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night. 

It was a fixture that had massive implications, as Frank Lampard's side handed Liverpool their first-ever Premier League title. 

The visitors needed a win to keep the title race alive, but they suffered a rather surprising defeat. 

As with every game since the top-flight restart, this one was played behind-closed-doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While having no supporters really does take away from the occasion, the empty stadium does mean viewers get a slightly different dynamic.

Those watching at home without fake crowd noise will be able to hear a lot of what's being said both on the pitch and on the touchline. 

It's fascinating to listen in and following Chelsea's win against Man City, BT Sport went one step further by sharing a video that included players and managers reacting to a number of big moments.

Check it out below, it really is a great watch: 

The first incident is Christian Pulisic's opening goal. After he beats Benjamin Mendy and calmly slots past Ederson, the American can be heard shouting: 'Yes! Let's f***ing go!' as he celebrates. 

After Kevin De Bruyne smashes his freekick in to equalise for Man City, he's mobbed by teammates, with one of them shouting 'Well done Kev!'. 

Then the cameras and microphones take us inside Lampard's second-half water break and he can be heard telling his team to play with more confidence.

Soon after, Fernandinho controversially handles the ball on the line and while VAR is making a decision on the punishment, the Chelsea boss can be heard discussing the incident on the bench.

Then, when Willian scores the penalty to make it 2-1, Lampard can be heard celebrating with his assistants. 

Finally, the video closes with Pep Guardiola offering his opposite number 'congratulations' for the win. It's a good show of sportsmanship from the Spaniard.

BT's 'Listen In' video really is a great watch, so hopefully, they produce more as the season concludes behind-closed-doors.
