Chelsea have been mercilessly 'twinned' with a village in Wales after racking up their 16th Premier League defeat of the season against Manchester United.
The west London club, who are having their worst campaign since the 70s, have been trolled by Paddy Power, who hijacked one of the most famous signs in the UK at the entrance to iconic Welsh village Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
The sign read: "Welcome to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Twinned with Chelsea FC, the only place with more Ls".

Llanfairpwllgwyngyll (as it's known for short) boasts a whopping 11 Ls, half the amount of Ls the Blues have amassed in all competitions this season.
Explaining the stunt, a spokesperson for the Irish bookmakers said in a statement: "Football is booming in Wales at the moment, with Hollywood A-listers catapulting local clubs to major success.
"Given it’s renaissance, we thought Chelsea might benefit from some Welsh magic, and with a population of just 3,000, they might need the support of every single one of them come Sunday. Chin up lads, Poch is en route!"
Where will Chelsea finish in the Premier League next season? Let us know in the comments section below
Frank Lampard's side were thumped 4-1 by United at Old Trafford, despite registering 60% possession and creating several gilt-edge chances, particularly in the first half.
Casemiro headed the Red Devils into the lead after just six minutes, and Anthony Martial doubled the host's lead in first half injury time. Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford completed the rout after the break, with Joao Felix grabbing a consolation for the Blues in the dying minutes.
The result secured a top four finish for Erik ten Hag's men, subsequently consigning fifth-placed Liverpool to their first season without Champions League football since Jurgen Klopp's first full campaign in charge.
Chelsea meanwhile are down in 12th place, but could drop as low as 14th if they lose to Newcastle and Wolves and West Ham beat Arsenal and Leicester respectively on the final day.
