Luke Littler couldn't resist taking a cheeky swipe at Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz after Manchester United's win at Villa Park on Sunday.
Luiz had scored for Villa against Erik ten Hag's side, levelling the game 1-1 in the second half after Rasmus Hojlund's fifth goal in his last five appearances had given the visitors the lead. And despite plenty of Villa pressure, United secured all three points four minutes from time when Scott McTominay headed the ball home.
But following his equaliser, Luiz celebrated with a dance in front of United's Raphael Varane and Andre Onana. After the match, United boss Erik ten Hag hinted that the Brazilian's celebration might have motivated his team.

Littler was less reserved, though, posting "Karma is real" on his Instagram story, along with a picture of Luiz celebrating his goal. Meanwhile, Varane could also be seen approaching Luiz after McTominay's late winner.
The 17-year-old, who reached the World Championship final in December, is an avid United fan and was invited by the club to their Premier League clash with Tottenham at Old Trafford in January.
