Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher humiliated a Louis van Gaal wannabe on Twitter last night, reports the Daily Star

The former Reds centre-back, who was tweeting about full-back Alberto Moreno's performance against Ludogorets last night, was the subject of abuse from @VanGaal2014 who branded Carragher a 'scouse c***'.

However, Carragher responded in fine style as he tweeted: "Louis don't be giving it mouth because you've won a game!"

Carragher, of course, was referring to Manchester United's first win of the season against QPR on Sunday, which was ultimately the first competitive win in the Van Gaal era. A number of Liverpool supporters responded to the tweet, as Carragher got one over on the Van Gaal wannabe. 

Liverpool victory 

And Carragher would have certainly been relieved by Liverpool's victory last night, as the Reds sneaked a win in their opening game of the Champions League group stages. After a tricky opening 80 minutes against Ludogorets, Italian striker Mario Balotelli struck the opener with just seven minutes remaining. 

However, Liverpool fans were stunned in stoppage time as Paulos Dani Abalo equalised to shock Brendan Rodgers and Co. But, Liverpool had the final say as Steven Gerrard converted a late penalty to hand his side all three points on their return to Europe's elite competition. 

Race for Champions League 

Liverpool and Manchester United, meanwhile, may well have to battle each other as they go in search of qualifying for the Champions League once again this season. Brendan Rodgers's side replaced the Red Devils in the competition this term after United suffered a disastrous campaign under David Moyes in 2013/14.

However, both teams have made an indifferent start domestically this term, with United currently sitting on five points from their opening four games, whilst Liverpool have six from their opening four clashes. 

Liverpool and Manchester United go head-to-head for the first time this season on December 13 at Old Trafford. Next up for Liverpool, meanwhile, will be a trip to Upton Park to take on West Ham United on Saturday evening, whilst Van Gaal's side travel to the King Power stadium to take on Premier League new-boys Leicester City.
