Jamie Carragher is very quickly becoming one of the funniest sporting stars to follow on social media.

Since hanging up his boots over three years ago, the Liverpool legend has a lot more time on his hands in between his punditry duties for Sky Sports.

And he does like to spend plenty of it finding various ways to troll some of his colleagues, former teammates and old opponents online - usually in reaction to something they have previously tweeted or posted.

So when Chelsea's official Twitter account shared a video of Gianfranco Zola making Carragher look a bit of a fool during a past encounter against Liverpool, the former England international couldn't help but nibble back.

The Blues sent the post out as part of their all-day celebrations to mark the 20th anniversary of Zola signing for the club.

As you can see below, the video shows Carragher left on his backside following a series of neat twists and turns from the skilful Italian.

Carragher is actually one of three Liverpool players humiliated by Zola in the short clip as Bruno Cheyrou and Danny Murphy are also teased into making unsuccessful challenges to win the ball.

The video is accompanied by a caption of: "You can never get bored of watching this... #Zola20"

But the Sky Sports pundit was determined to have the last laugh on the subject by firing back this tweet:

Carragher decided to hit Chelsea where it hurts by making reference to Luis Garcia's infamous 'ghost goal' against the Blues to help Liverpool progress through to the Champions League final in 2005.

Despite winning Europe's elite competition more recently than the side from Merseyside, it is still a sore subject for many fans from west London, who were adamant their team deserved to go through.

Jose Mourinho has also previously admitted his regret from not winning that semi-final and was particularly critical of the referee Lubos Michel for awarding the goal when the ball had seemingly not crossed the line.

As of yet, there has been no response from Chelsea's account although plenty of the club's supporters have reacted by trying to troll Carragher themselves. Here are a few of the best responses:
