Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has once again called for the sacking of veteran manager Arsene Wenger in the aftermath of his side's disappointing 2-1 defeat against Swansea City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The French tactician was the target for abuse from a number of Gunners supporters on social media, after the north Londoners were pegged back from a goal up at the Liberty Stadium.

Alexis Sanchez looked to have secured all three points for the visitors in South Wales after converting a Danny Welbeck pass midway through the second half, but goals from former Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson and substitute Bafetimbi Gomis handed the hosts a memorable victory.

In a series of explosive tweets posted in the aftermath of yesterday's match, Morgan made clear his firm belief that Wenger's time at the Emirates Stadium is now up, and called for any Arsenal fans still supporting the 65-year-old to "wake the f*** up".

The result leaves the Gunners languishing in sixth place in the Premier League table, 12 points behind runaway leaders Chelsea after just 13 games played. Swansea moved above their weekend opponents to occupy fifth place, which prompted even more anguish from the United States based Morgan.

Arsenal's late capitulation is the second time in the space of a week that they have sacrificed a lead, after being pegged back by Belgian outfit Anderlecht in the Champions League last Tuesday.

The Gunners were cruising 3-0 up at the Emirates before conceding three late goals, which meant their place in the knockout phase of the competition will not be confirmed for another couple of weeks at least, after picking up just one point from the latest Group D clash.

Wenger will be hoping that the recent results don't play on his players' minds too much, particularly now that they have linked up their respective countries for the international break, meaning that their next domestic game won't be played for just under two weeks.

And, to make matters worse, the next fixture is not going to be an easy one either, with Manchester United travelling to the capital on November 22.
