Torres 5/6 not to celebrate a goal against Liverpool

| 04.02.2011

FERNANDO TORRES is odds-on (1/2) with Ladbrokes to start against Liverpool on Sunday.

In what will be one of the most anticipated debuts in years, it’s 33/1 that he gets sent off and just 7/4 he receives a yellow card. He was keen to stress the respect he had for Liverpool fans in the press conference and it’s 5/6 that he scores and doesn’t celebrate.

It’s 12/1 he kisses the Chelsea badge after scoring and 16/1 that despite his comments he raises a finger to his lips to ‘silence’ the Liverpool fans. It’s 20/1 he runs over to his old fans immediately after scoring and 11/4 he finds the net in front of the away end.

It’s also 500/1 that he reveals a Chelsea tattoo after scoring in what would be a bizarre display of loyalty to his new club.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Torres looks set to make his Chelsea debut in a game which has all the makings of a Premier League classic. A goal would be the perfect way to announce his arrival and should he find the back of the net all eyes will be on what he does next. The odds suggest he will stay calm but in the heat of the moment anything is possible.”
