Sevilla Striker Ben Yedder Expertly Trolled Liverpool With Post-Match Tweet
Sevilla striker Wissam Ben Yedder tolled Liverpool big-time after their second half Champions League collapse last night.
The Reds were 3-0 up and flying in the first half-an-hour, with Roberto Firmino grabbing a double either side of a strike from Sadio Mane.
Here's Klopp having a bit of beef with the Sevilla ball boy in the first half:
At the time, it looked like Liverpool were about to inflict Sevilla's first defeat on home soil since 2016 but a remarkable comeback ensued, with Ben Yedder bagging two in nine minutes shortly after half-time to become Sevilla's top scorer in the Champions League and set up a grandstand finish, before Guido Pizarro pounced in the 93rd minute to complete a phenomenal comeback and ensure the second meeting of the season between the two finished all-square.
And Ben Yedder, who you may remember trolled Arsenal after the Emirates Cup, rinsed Liverpool big-time not long after the full-time whistle.
He Tweeted a screenshot of the scoreline, with the caption, 'Hope AC Milan watched it' - complete with two emojis. The Tweet has since garnered over 23,000 Retweets and 35,000 likes, at the time of writing.
Of course, Ben Yedder was referring to the fact that Sevilla essentially did a Liverpool to Liverpool, who came from 3-0 down in the 2005 Champions League final to win against Milan.
Naturally, he was met with some abuse from angry Liverpool fans; including one Tweet where he was called a "baguette munching twat" in a post since deleted.
But the 26-year old had a cool response, taking the funny side:
Social media was full of great Tweets after Liverpool threw away a three-goal lead. Here are some of the best:
Despite the second-half collapse from Liverpool, they remain top of Group E on nine points - and are still on course to progress to the knockout stages - while Spartak Moscow are on six points, Liverpool have a superior head-to-head record.
What is not set in stone though, is who will finish the group as winners - with Sevilla remaining a point behind the Anfield club going into the final matchday.
