Jamie Carragher mocks Everton on Twitter - and Blues fans hit back!

The Liverpool icon made a joke about the Merseyside club's recent attempts to sell half-season tickets.

Jamie Carragher couldn't miss the opportunity to tease Everton fans on Twitter last night after their 1-1 draw with Hull City.

Carragher's former club Liverpool have struggled so far this season but currently sit above the Toffees in the Premier League table and won at Leicester on Tuesday, while Roberto Martinez's side were unable to take all three points against the Tigers.

That presented the perfect opportunity for the 36-year-old to mock Everton, taking aim at their recent attempt to offload half-season tickets at Goodison Park.

Naturally, several Toffees supporters responded to Carragher's bait, with some emphasising the fact that the ex-Liverpool man was a boyhood Everton fan and some pointing out the fact that the club actually drew with Hull and didn't lose.

Everton's trip to Premier League champions Manchester City takes place on Saturday evening, when they face Manuel Pellegrini's men at the Etihad Stadium during the late kick-off.

Martinez and co will no doubt be hoping to get back to winning ways. Even then, though, if the opportunity presents itself, Carragher is never one to miss a joke, is he?
