If Leeds United's under-23 game with Watford was a boxing match then it would have been stopped early.
The Whites won 6-0, easing to a convincing win at Elland Road in front of first team manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Luke Ayling made his return from injury and got on the scoresheet, netting Leeds' sixth goal.
By this point Watford's social media team appeared pretty tired of Leeds' running riot.
Their score update made clear to point out that Ayling had made numerous first team appearances for the Whites.
Goal!— Watford Football Club (@WatfordFC) September 16, 2019
Luke Ayling, who has played more than 100 times for the first team, converts at the far post with his left foot.
The rules state that each club are permitted to play three over 23 players. This is because under-23 football has effectively replaced the old reserves league.
It is necessary for clubs to give players like Ayling game time when they have not featured for the first team.
In Ayling's case, injury has meant he hasn't played all season until now.
Leeds' social media team accused Watford of being 'salty' with their message.
Leeds supporters got in on the act too, responding to mock the Hornets.
Here is a look at a selection of the responses to Watford's tweet...
