Piers Morgan predicts the Premier League's top six

Piers Morgan gave his 5.1 million followers on Twitter a real treat on Tuesday by answering various football related questions.

Whenever there's a bit of a lull between matches during the week, you can usually rely on Morgan to provide some entertaining - and usually controversial - insight on the current state of the game.

The devoted Arsenal fan is more often than not brutally honest about his team's chances for the season and his latest prediction for the current campaign suggests he might be feeling even more pessimistic than normal.

Four games into the new Premier League season and the standings are beginning to take the sort of shape we should be expecting for the rest of the year.

So, based on what he has seen so far, how does Piers think the top six will shape up by the end of May?

Well, he inadvertently ended up producing two responses to the question as his first prediction - which has since been deleted - of: 1. Manchester City 2. Manchester United 3. Chelsea 4. Tottenham 5. Arsenal 6. Leicester didn't include Liverpool who, shortly after posting the initial tweet, he admitted he had forgotten to include.

Arsenal fans would have already been peeved at his first forecast, where they were pitched in a disappointing fifth position, but their anger was ignited even further by Morgan's second attempt.

As you can see Morgan pushed Arsene Wenger's side even further down the table after Liverpool's inclusion and fully expects them to miss out on qualifying for the Champions League.

Not just that, the Good Morning Britain presenter also thinks that their fierce rivals Tottenham will finish above them.

Naturally, Gunners supporters responded furiously. Here are some of the best tweets:

Afterwards, Morgan did also concede that Everton's strong start to the season meant they could compete for a top six spot too, although, if that would force Arsenal even further down his predicted table, Morgan's Twitter notifications may have actually exploded, so it was probably a wise idea he didn't alter his forecast any further.
