Piers Morgan wants Arsenal to beat Liverpool to Jurgen Klopp

Arsene Wenger has absorbed plenty of criticism from Arsenal fans during his 19 years in charge of the club, but not even his harshest judges could have faulted his team's display against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Gunners pulverised their Premier League title rivals, scoring three goals in the opening 20 minutes to launch themselves into second place going into an international break.

That wasn't enough to satisfy Piers Morgan, however. He still believes Arsenal officials should rid themselves of the longstanding Frenchman and seize the chance to hire the unemployed Jurgen Klopp.

Morgan, who himself owns eight shares in his favourite football club, is worried that failure to do so now will see the German join Liverpool. The Reds are believed to be in talks with Klopp over replacing Brendan Rodgers.

On a Monday morning when most Arsenal fans were praising the attacking trio of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott, the former CNN employee was only thinking about dethroning Wenger. 

He tweeted: "Arsenal should gazump Liverpool over Klopp. He's 20yrs younger than Wenger & a dynamic, managerial genius. We won't, but we should."

The reaction

Happy fans, mostly

Needless to say, he was one of very few in the #WengerOut brigade who were brave enough to stick to the same rhetoric. Most Arsenal fans have, rather strangely, decided to be happy.

With their team two points off the top of the Premier League table, and Chelsea fighting for survival at the bottom, things are looking rosy – on the domestic stage, at least – for the Gunners.
