Italian mocks United, but does so far too soon…
Liverpool fans – who were you supporting yesterday, Manchester United or Manchester City…?
Obviously – one of the only feelings almost as good as watching Liverpool score is watching someone else put one past United, but towards the send of the season, situations arise when we actually need our enemies to do us a favour.
Sunday’s Old Trafford clash was one of them, as a United victory in the Manchester derby would have put us right back in the race for the top four, provided we beat Newcastle this evening at Anfield.
Nobody had given Mario Balotelli the memo though, as the Italian celebrated on Twitter when his old teammate Sergio Aguero put our biggest competition for fourth spot ahead…
Yeeeees city@aguerosergiokun !!! 1-0 OLD TRAFFORD…Stand up and shut up.

Not only should a Liverpool player with top four aspirations have been supporting United yesterday, but Balotelli was made to look a little silly by the fact Louis van Gaal’s enormously unlikeable outfit came back to win 4-2.
Despite the mathematical complications – it’s still pretty hard not to smile when anybody scores past David de Gea, so we can certainly understand Mario’s feelings!
