Liverpool originally had a Premier League fixture scheduled for this weekend, which just so happened was the game that we’d finally get our hands on the trophy.
If not for the FA Cup, that is – the semi-finals were played over the weekend, and Manchester City were knocked out by Arsenal in a 2-0 loss at Wembley.
This comes just days after many Reds supporters on Twitter were bombarded by fans of the Citizens for failing to reach 100 points this season.
So, with those two things put together – it’s easy to see why some Liverpool fans were thrilled when Pep Guardiola and co. were stunned by the Gunners.
Chelsea – our Premier League opponents on Wednesday, when we’ll lift the trophy – take on Manchester United in the other FA Cup semi-final.
One of them will be taking on Arsenal in the final, which is somewhat of a shock as City were nailed-on favourites be there to defend the cup.
Liverpool fans on social media found humour in the result, and took to Twitter to crack jokes at the expense of our closest title rivals.
Here are some of the best tweets below (and check out their replies):

Looking forward to the claims from City that winning in the court of appeals counts towards a treble

Liverpool lost to Arsenal to give them the confidence to beat City in the FA Cup. 4D chess by Klopp yet again.
