Aymeric Laporte played five games for Manchester City and he did so alongside new signing Ruben Dias. City have conceded two goals but they are unbeaten, including a relatively solid showing against Liverpool’s four talented forwards.

After the duo impressed against champions Liverpool, especially in the second half, Laporte and Dias were praised for how quickly their partnership has developed.

And when one of City’s sponsors took to Twitter to ask followers how good the pair were, Laporte replied with an answer of his own. The Frenchman has been nicknamed the ‘door’ by fans in the past, for his quality of not letting attackers past him.

So if Laporte is the door, he feels Dias is the key to unlocking his best form. In reply to the tweet, Laporte simply replied with a door emoji, alongside a key emoji about Dias.
