Leeds United brutally mocked Liverpool following the Premier League clash between the team, calling Jurgen Klopp’s side the ‘Merseyside Reds’.
Diego Llorente scored a late equaliser at Elland Road though the match was somewhat overshadowed by talks over a proposed European Super League.
Liverpool are one of 12 teams to be involved in the breakaway division, along with five other Premier League sides.
And Leeds did not let the issue lie following the 1-1 draw with the reigning Premier League champions.
Following the clash, Leeds United’s official account posted: “FULL TIME: #LUFC hold Super League side Merseyside Reds to a 1-1 draw after late Llorente equaliser”.
The Whites had mocked the other clubs earlier in the day, changing the fixture list on their own website.
Leeds are still to play Manchester United and Tottenham before the end of the season and their names had been changed to Trafford Reds and London Whites.
While Leeds striker Patrick Bamford explained: “We’ve just seen what pretty much everyone else has seen on Twitter.
“It’s amazing the amount of uproar that comes in to the game when somebody’s pockets are being hurt.
“It’s a shame it’s not like that when all the things that go wrong with things at the minute, racism and stuff like that.
“It’s something we talk about but once you’re on the pitch you’re not thinking about stuff that goes on outside the ground.
“We’re like fans really, we can’t believe it and we’re talking about it [amongst ourselves]. We don’t know what’s going to happen and we’re in shock.

“I think that for me personally from what I’ve seen on Twitter and the news, I haven’t see one football fan who is happy about the decision.
“I think football ultimately is for the fans. Without the fans every single club would be pretty much nothing.
“It’s important we stand our ground and show that football is for the fans and try and keep it that way.”
