Manchester City took a dig at rivals Manchester United on Twitter – seconds after their 6-1 loss to Tottenham was confirmed.
The Red Devils suffered a disaster against the north London side, conceding four goals before half time following defending gaffes.
Anthony Martial saw red after the first two strikes, seeing Serge Aurier run free after 50 minutes and Harry Kane slotting from the penalty spot in the second half.
It has seen fans lay into manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and chief Ed Woodward for the result as well as the club’s poor transfer window business.
And rivals City also leapt at the opportunity to take a dig at their rivals on social media.
Tottenham shared a graphic confirming the final result on their official Twitter channel, accompanied with: “FULL-TIME: An unforgettable afternoon at Old Trafford.”
And Pep Guardiola’s side shared this on their channel, simply adding a handshake emoji, a reference to their own 6-1 humiliation of United at Old Trafford in the 2011/12 season.
United’s former players even laid into the club as Patrice Evra, who won five Premier League titles and a Champions League at Old Trafford, emotionally tore into Solskjaer’s team.
Speaking on Sky Sports with tears welling, the Frenchman said: “Alexis Sanchez made a comment when he talked about United.
“After his first training session at United, he asked his agent to end his contract.
“I’m a positive person. I never want to talk about United as when you tell the truth it can hurt.
“I know you have to have a filter when you talk on TV but it is a shambles.
“Tonight, no-one has any excuses. They let down all the United fans. Every year it’s the same story.
“I feel now what the United fans feel. I feel so sad. Some of those players need a good slap.”
While Gary Neville, who was on commentary duty for Sky Sports at Old Trafford, held nothing back in his analysis.
“I can’t believe we are where we are,” the former United defender said.
“There’s no excuse for those players out on the pitch because they were absolutely pathetic.
“The body language was terrible, it was spineless. They know how to win but you think about the off-the-pitch.
“The minute Spurs went 2-1 up, it was as if all the negative thoughts took the energy out of them.
“These United players have not helped themselves but the off-the-pitch stuff does not help.”
