Take to Twitter, obviously.

At 9.58pm, less than half an hour after Sevilla’s unlikely 3-3 draw against Liverpool, Ben Yedder tweeted out that he ‘hope AC Milan watched it’.

If that’s gone over your head then allow us to jog your memory.

The 27-year-old was referring to the three-goal comeback that saw Liverpool draw with AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League before winning on penalties.

He wasn’t stopping there either.

When a triggered Liverpool fan replied with a highly offensive tweet, which included references to a ‘baguette’ and the ‘Europa League’, Ben Yedder saw the funny side.

You hold this W, Mr Ben Yedder.

The former Toulouse striker now has eight goals in 13 games this season, adding to his tally of 18 in 42 last campaign.

He’s yet to play for France, although he has turned out for their Futsal team and the Under-21s on nine occasions.

However he’s not giving up hope of an international call up.

Ben Yedder turned down the chance to play for Tunisia in Russia next summer in order to focus on making the France squad.

Hatem Ben Arfa did the same, rejecting the chance to represent Tunisia at the 2006 World Cup, and was rewarded with 15 caps for France.

Just the small matter of Athony Martial, Kylian Mbappe, Alexandre Lacazette, Nabil Fekir, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud and Kevin Gameiro to get past now.
