Manchester United legend Gary Neville has trolled Liverpool on social media after Jurgen Klopp’s side conceded the opening goal against Brighton.
Klopp’s side looked as if they had got over their bad run of form with back-to-back victories away at Tottenham and West Ham United.
However, Liverpool, despite dominating the ball at Anfield, found themselves 1-0 behind on 56 minutes when the Seagulls took a surprise lead, before the relegation-threatened side held on for all three points.
Neville posted a video on Twitter captioned: ‘Eyes’, where he pretends to be asleep and wakes up just after the Brighton goal.
The ex-United right-back then sits up in his chair as if he’s shocked that the reigning champions had fallen behind at home.
Neville is no stranger to winding Liverpool fans up, he’s been doing it ever since he retired, as well as during his playing days.
The former United man famously ran the length of the pitch to go and celebrate in front of the Liverpool supporters, kissing the Manchester club’s badge, when Rio Ferdinand scored a late winner back in 2006.
Himself and Jamie Carragher, a former Liverpool defender, often take it in turns to mock the other whenever their respective teams lose.
It’s a good night for Neville after Liverpool fell to their second successive home defeat after their recent loss to Burnley.

Manchester United smashed nine goals past Southampton on Tuesday night as they bounced back from disappointing results against Sheffield United and Arsenal in emphatic fashion.
The game was effectively over as a contest inside the first two minutes as Southampton were reduced to 10 men, but United still had to find the goals and they did exactly that, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial (two), Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes and Daniel James all getting on the scoresheet.

Klopp’s side welcome Manchester City to Anfield on Sunday evening in a game that might not feel as important for the hosts following tonight’s result.
City, on the other hand, made it 13 successive victories in all competitions on the same day, as they comfortably beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor.
Pep Guardiola’s side can take a huge step in putting last season’s champions more or less out of the title race should they pick up three points at Anfield.
