Premier League Returns With Fake Crowd Noise And Fans Aren't Sure About It
| Last updated
Premier League fans aren't sure what to make of the fake crowd noise being used during Aston Villa vs Sheffield United.
The English top-flight has resumed this evening after a three month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
No fans are allowed in Villa Park for the game but viewers at home will be hearing piped in crowd noise on Sky Sports Main Event.
However, some are not into the idea and have pointed to a save from Blades keeper Dean Henderson that proves the feature is being used poorly.
Henderson's routine save from a Conor Hourihane volley saw a huge roar generated that felt incredibly out of place.
Fans on Twitter have expressed their views on the crowd noise and they aren't sold on it yet.
The crowd noise has been created in partnership with EA Sports to 'bring the vibrant atmosphere of the Premier League to the restart.'
A range of chants will be used as well as club-specific songs.
What do you think of the artificial crowd noise and are you watching with it on or off?
