Sunday was quite the day for Premier League football, and I’m sure Arsenal fans across the country are still lapping up their dramatic 4-2 victory over bitter rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.
Amongst Spurs’ recent resurgence under Mauricio Pochettino, many have argued that the tide has shifted in terms of who is North London’s most-dominant club.
However, Gunners fans now have all the bragging rights, leapfrogging ahead of Pochettino’s side into fourth place.
One famous Arsenal fan who has long-criticised the club’s fall from grace towards the end of the Arsene Wenger era is Piers Morgan.
The Good Morning Britain host certainly enjoyed this weekend’s result, and didn’t hesitate in shutting down suggestions of Spurs ‘eclipsing’ the Gunners in recent years.
He told talkSport’s Alan Brazil: “North London is, like it’s always been, red. So suck on that!
“We’ve had all the chat for years about how they’re eclipsing Arsenal, but on yesterday’s performance I don’t see it.
“For Tottenham, the EFL Cup is about the only thing they can possibly win. So, I would imagine they will put their first team out against us in two weeks’ time, most of whom went missing yesterday.”
Fighting words from Mr Morgan. But hey, he’s never been one to speak openly, right?
One player who didn’t feature in the game due to injury was Mesut Ozil, a player who fans are becoming increasingly impatient with.
Morgan also suggested the side could be better off without him.
He continued: “I don’t see how Mesut Ozil fits into the team. I used to always support him, but this guy has more sick notes than anyone.
“I think Emery has lost patience with Ozil and the truth is we don’t need him. If he wants to leave in January, I don’t think Arsenal fans will shed a tear.
“My message to him is this: You might be earning £300k or £400k a week, but we’re counting the sick notes and counting the games you don’t turn up in.”
If this weekend is anything to go by, then Arsenal may not need Ozil to succeed this season.
However, both Spurs and Arsenal meet again in the Carabao Cup in two weeks’ time. Can Pochettino and his side redeem themselves? Or will it be another dominant display from the Gunners?News Now - Sport News
