Liverpool v Basel: Swiss club mock Reds, Chelsea and Tottenham

Basel players celebrate
Basel finished second in Group B to reach the Champions League knockout stages

Swiss champions FC Basel celebrated progressing from their Champions League group at Liverpool by taking a cheeky swipe at a few of their recent English victims.

The Swiss Super League outfit drew 1-1 at Anfield to take four points from Liverpool in Group B, beat Chelsea twice in last season's competition and dumped Tottenham out of the 2012-13 Europa League.

The hat-trick of successes over three of England's biggest clubs prompted an Instagram post containing cartoon caricatures of a player from each of the London clubs carrying away a dizzied Liverpool counterpart.

The sketched characters console the Liverpool player with the Anfield club's slogan "You'll Never Walk Alone", but the witty jibe was met with some prickled responses on social media.

Unrelenting in enjoying another famous success on English soil, Basel followed up with an image of players, including former Liverpool man Philipp Degen, celebrating wildly in the Anfield away dressing room.

The 17-time Swiss champions last made the knockout stages in 2012 but failed to qualify from the group last year and will now eagerly await Monday's draw.
