Liverpool fans were shocked and delighted as Glen Johnson produced a superb display for Stoke City during their one-goal win over Chelsea on Saturday night.
Indeed, an improved Blues side still lost 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium, with a banned Jose Mourinho nowhere in sight.
Chelsea were improved - but they were still awful in the final third. Time after time, players would enter the danger area, hesitate, turn backwards, play a poor pass and run out of ideas.
But the same couldn't be said for Stoke, with Johnson in particular standing out going forward. It was a performance from the 31-year-old Liverpool fans will remember fondly. But it's also a performance Johnson hadn't delivered at Anfield for a number of years.
Here he is at Stoke, though, putting in - at the very least - far better displays. And here he was tearing another former club of his apart in Chelsea.
That prompted Liverpool fans to, firstly, celebrate his performance on Twitter and, secondly, mock the Premier League champions - who are now in a very tricky situation indeed under Mourinho:
