As a former player and pundit that divides opinion, Michael Owen's comments on social media are mocked by fans on a regular basis.
So, when he the former Liverpool striker posted his support for Jurgen Klopp's men mid-way through their Saturday evening fixture against West Bromwich Albion, he probably expecting the same old response.
However, what he probably wasn't expecting was to be trolled by former teammate and current England captain, Wayne Rooney.
Owen's tweet in question saw the former Liverpool and Manchester United forward show his enthusiasm as the Merseyside club appeared to be heading to the top of the Premier League after goals from Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho.
The tweet itself isn't too strange considering Owen's time leading the line for Liverpool and the fact that he is now employed as a club ambassador at Anfield.
However, Rooney wasn't going to let the post go by without trying to stir up a little bit of controversy. Check out his reply below...
We're not sure where Rooney got the idea that Owen is a secret Red Devils fans. Maybe he let it slip whilst the pair were teammates at Old Trafford a few seasons ago.
Or, more likely, the current United star was just a little bit bored with his team not in Premier League action on Saturday.
In the end, Liverpool could only manage a 2-1 win over WBA, meaning Arsenal remain top of the pile courtesy of their slightly better goal difference.
While Rooney might be pleased to see the red half of Merseyside kept off the number one spot, his own weekend might not be going according to plan.
That's after speculation this evening that the England striker will not be travelling with the rest of the Manchester United squad for their crunch fixture against Chelsea on Sunday.
If this is the case, it would cap a truly frustrating campaign for the veteran after having already lost his place in the starting XI in recent weeks due to poor form.
One thing that may please Owen, meanwhile, is the fact that neither Chelsea or United can leapfrog Liverpool with a win tomorrow.
