Kyle Walker has deleted a tweet he posted in which he captioned a picture of Harry Maguire talking to his girlfriend.
Walker, who played in Man City’s shock 2-1 defeat to Newcastle on Tuesday, attempted some light-hearted humourous trolling after Liverpool drew 1-1 with Leicester last night at Anfield.
The Reds extended their lead over City to five points but missed the chance to leap seven points clear last night and Walker posted a comment on an image of Leicester scorer Maguire on a picture from last summer’s World Cup.
“So basically they thought they were gonna go 7 points ahead…,” tweeted Walker, who is an England team-mate of Maguire.

Walker though deleted the tweet within an hour, probably as not to cause any controversy between City and their title rivals.
It is ridiculous that Kyle Walker felt he had to delete that Maguire tweet.
