Piers Morgan is one of the more well-known celebrity Arsenal supporters, not least because of his tendency to make controversial comments relating to football on Twitter.
Whether about the Gunners’ title chances or who should be their prime transfer target, the British television personality is rarely far away from the action on social media.
Morgan is not afraid to share his opinion with the virtual masses, and most things he posts usually generates some form of squabble.

With Arsenal set to kick-off their Champions League campaign against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday evening, there is plenty of speculation over how the London club will fare in Europe this season.
Arsene Wenger has claimed his squad is better equipped than ever to progress deep into the tournament this time around – and Morgan has made it abundantly clear that he disagrees.

Morgan has responded to the Gunners boss’ assessment of the current team by comparing them with arguably the greatest Arsenal side in history – the Invincibles.
The 51-year-has dismissed the idea of Mesut Ozil and co. being good enough to play in the Invincible side as “utter nonsense”.
Morgan went on to claim that not a single member of the Arsenal squad is worthy of being held in the same regard as club legends Thierry Henry or Dennis Bergkamp – that includes talisman Alexis Sanchez.
While Morgan is obviously convinced the Arsenal players of today are nowhere the level of the title-winning 2004 outfit, his comments have elicited a mixed reaction from Gunners fans.
Some agree with Morgan, whereas others believe a few of their heroes would quite comfortably walk into the Invincibles team alongside Henry, Bergkamp and co.
There is no question that Wenger has managed to put together a solid squad for this season – a particularly impressive feat considering he completed most of his business in the dying stages of the transfer window.
With the arrivals of Shkodran Mustafi, Granit Xhaka and Lucas Perez to complement a strong core consisting of Ozil, Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny, the Gunners might well fancy their chances of challenging for all silverware this season.
However, it is far too early to suggest this squad has the ability to match the achievements of the Invincibles.
