Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli was a little too quick off the mark to congratulate his former side Manchester City during the Manchester derby yesterday afternoon. 

The controversial Italian forward, who has endured a torrid time at Anfield this term, took to Twitter to troll the Manchester United support after his former strike-partner Sergio Aguero gave the citizens an early lead at Old Trafford. 

United's revenge 

Balotelli, of course, was involved in City's 6-1 demolition of their rivals back in 2011, but this was a totally different afternoon for his ex-teammates.

Despite taking the lead at the Theatre of Dreams, Manchester United, under the guidance of Dutchman Louis van Gaal, found the back of the net on for occasions thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata and Chris Smalling. 

City struck late on through Aguero, but the Sky Blues endured one of their worst days for many years as they were beaten for the fourth consecutive time away from home.

In truth, after yesterday's result, Balotelli and his Liverpool teammates will now be hoping for a City downfall as the Merseyside outfit go in search of qualification for next year's Champions League competition. 

After six straight wins for Manchester United, however, Louis van Gaal's side look almost certain to return to the competition after failing under David Moyes last term. 

And United fans certainly took pleasure in Balotelli's tweet yesterday...

Time is up 

Perhaps, though, with or without European football on Merseyside, Balotelli won't be there to see it next season. 

Ultimately, with just one league goal, Balotelli's stint back in the Premier League has been a disaster as he's failed to hold down a regular place in Brendan Rodgers' starting XI throughout the course of the campaign. 

In truth, it would be a huge surprise if he made another go of it next term, and you'd expect him to move on sooner rather than later. One thing's for sure, he won't be joining Manchester United...
