This weekend figures to be a delightful one for football fans.
The international break is over and we are welcomed back with one of the finest fixtures in all of football: Arsenal versus Tottenham Hotspur.
There has been talk of a power shift in north London since Tottenham’s rise under Mauricio Pochettino, and Spurs have a great opportunity to provide further evidence of that today.
While the Gunners have been inconsistent, Tottenham look stylish and efficient. This may not be their yet, with Manchester City looking imperious right now, but there’s no doubting which club from north London is in the best position to challenge for a Premier League title right now.
Still, Pochettino must be way of an Arsenal side that looks set to feature Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Morgan is pessimistic about Arsenal's hopes
Ahead of the contest, Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan went head-to-head with former Spurs chairman Lord Sugar as they traded barbs for Sky Sports.
Morgan has made clear his stance on Arsene Wenger and he was very pessimistic about Arsenal’s hopes of beating their rivals.
“I'm not looking forward to it because I fear there has been a shift in power and it's the first time I can remember Tottenham coming to Arsenal's ground in the league where I genuinely think we're going to lose,” he said.
“I feel like I'm waving a white flag but I can only be realistic.”
At least he’s honest.
“Spurs have a better manager, a better owner, a better team,” Morgan added.
Morgan just posted a tragic NLD tweet
Yet Morgan ended the interview by saying he hopes Arsenal stuff Tottenham 4-0 and he’s just posted a tweet that proves he’s excited for the match, even if he is fearing the worst.
The 52-year-old posted a photo of himself wearing full Arsenal kit sitting underneath Mesut Ozil’s shirt in the club’s dressing room.
“The North London Derby requires men of steel. I'm ready. #AFCvTHFC #NLD,” he wrote.
Pretty tragic stuff.
Fans on Twitter found Morgan’s tweet hilarious, and couldn’t wait to rip the TV host.
You can bet your bottom dollar that Spurs fans will rush back to Morgan’s tweet should their team win.
That’s if he hasn’t already deleted it by then.
