Aymeric Laporte Quickly Deletes 'World War Three' Meme On Twitter

Aymeric Laporte quickly deleted a tweet that joked about 'World War Three' last night.

The injured Manchester City defender was active on social media during his side's Carabao Cup clash with Manchester United.

And following the game, he tweeted a controversial 'World War Three' meme which he quickly deleted.

Twitter users managed to screenshot the tweet before it's deletion however.

The tweet was captioned 'when they call me to join the troops #nope #WWIII' and a gif of the Frenchman wagging his finger.

Many on Twitter were quick to let Laporte know they'd seen the tweet despite his quick deletion.

City will be hoping they can get the 25-year-old back on the pitch soon as he continues to recover from his knee injury.

But they didn't miss him in the heart of defence last night as they defeated United 3-1 following a ruthless first half.

Bernardo Silva bent in a lovely effort from 25 yards out to give City an early lead.

Silva would continue to punish United and set up his side's second of the game just after the half hour mark.

He prodded the ball through United's back line and Riyad Mahrez rounded David De Gea to coolly slot home.

A third followed five minutes later after De Gea managed to save a Kevin De Bruyne effort which bounced in off a helpless Andreas Pereira.

Raheem Sterling spurned multiple chances for Pep Guardiola's side who could have embarrassed United at Old Trafford.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side came out for the second half more focused and nicked a goal through Marcus Rashford.

United have it all to do at the Etihad in three weeks time.
