Harry Wilson has savagely trolled Manchester United after an astounding free kick helped knock them out of the League Cup.
The Red Devils were dumped out on penalties by Championship side Derby County, after the third-round tie ended 2-2 in normal time at Old Trafford on Tuesday (local time).
With no extra time in this season’s competition, the contest went straight to spot kicks and Frank Lampard’s Derby won 8-7, with Phil Jones’s effort saved by visiting keeper Scott Carson.
Derby had been moments away from winning 2-1 in normal time after United keeper Sergio Romero was sent off in the 67th minute but Marouane Fellaini got a stoppage-time equaliser.
Jose Mourinho’s United side had taken the lead in the third minute with a well-placed shot from Juan Mata after Anthony Martial had burst down the left flank.
But Derby drew level in spectacular fashion after 59 minutes with a brilliant bending free-kick from Wilson, the young Welsh winger on loan from Liverpool.
Wilson then proceeded to mock his opponents by holding up five fingers as he celebrated, referencing Liverpool’s five European cups (compared to United’s three).
The savage celebration lit up social media.

Eight minutes later, Romero was dismissed for handling outside the box and Derby grabbed what they thought was the winner when United’s substitute keeper Lee Grant parried a shot from Mason Mount and Jack Marriott nodded in the loose ball.
But in the fifth minute of added time, substitute Fellaini headed in a Diogo Dalot cross to force the shootout.
Derby boss Frank Lampard admitted he was “shellshocked” after the win.
“I’m a bit shellshocked in a good way, what a performance from the team,” Lampard told Sky Sports Football.
“To have the personality to take penalties and perform the way they did. I’m just a proud manager.”
Mourinho admitted he felt United were in trouble in the penalty shootout when it went to sudden death.
“They tried until the last second and then the penalties come and someone has to miss, and when I saw it going after the sixth, the seventh, I knew we were going to be in trouble with Jones, with Eric (Bailly), I knew we were going to be in trouble then,” the Portuguese said.
“We wanted to win the match and we are disappointed we drew.”
City ease into fourth round
Phil Foden enjoyed a fine evening for Manchester City as the holders eased into the fourth round with a 3-0 victory at Oxford.
The England Under-19 international was involved in the opening two goals, scored by Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez, before sealing the win with his first senior goal.
Substitute Harvey Elliott became the youngest-ever player to feature for Fulham at 15 years and 174 days after coming off the bench in the 3-1 win at Millwall.
Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend scored twice to help secure a 3-0 win against West Brom at The Hawthorns.
Danny Ward was Leicester’s hero at Wolves in a penalty shootout – the goalkeeper saving from Romain Saiss, Diogo Jota and Adama Traore as the Foxes won 3-1, following a 0-0 draw at Molineux.
Other winners were Middlesbrough, Norwich, Blackpool, Bournemouth and Burton Albion.
