MANCHESTER UNITED fans brutally taunted Simon Mignolet with Steven Gerrard chants after the Club Brugge goalkeeper slipped while attempting a goal kick on Thursday night.
The former Liverpool No1 – who was in goal for Gerrard's infamous, title-defining slip of 2014 – fell flat on his backside himself during his side's thrashing.
With the score already at 3-0 to United, Mignolet hit the deck as he attempted a long hoof up-field during the 5-0 Europa League drubbing at Old Trafford.
Never ones to forget a moment involving arch-rivals Liverpool, Man Utd fans were merciless in their response.
The Old Trafford faithful erupted in a chorus of, "Are you Gerrard in disguise", much to the amusement of the crowd.
Gerrard famously slipped during the monster, top-of-the-table clash with Chelsea in April 2014.
His blunder allowed Demba Ba to storm through on goal and slot past Mignolet to clinch the three points.
Liverpool ultimately collapsed as the season drew to a close having at one stage been on the brink of winning their first Premier League crown.
After finishing second that year, the Reds went on something of a slump – finishing sixth and then eighth in the next two seasons.
