Ozil, Morgan and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal thrash Liverpool

Mesut Ozil and Piers Morgan both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal thrash Liverpool 4-1 to move up to second in the Premier League

Arsenal moved up to second in the Premier League table thanks to a thumping 4-1 win over 10-man Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Gunners took the lead in the 37th minute when Hector Bellerin curled home a left-footed shot.

Mesut Ozil then made it 2-0 with a sublime free-kick just two minutes later, before Alexis Sanchez drilled home on the stroke of half-time.

Jordan Henderson pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in the second half but Olivier Giroud’s stunning turn and shot added gloss to the scoreline after Emre Can was shown a second yellow card.

Saturday’s big game prompted plenty of activity on Twitter – and here are some of our favourite post-match updates.

Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) is a happy man at The Emirates: “Haven’t seen us score 4 better goals in a game than this in years. I should come more often. #afc”

Former Arsenal man Lee Dixon (@LeeDixon2) has his say: “Today has been all that is good with Arsenal v All that is bad about Liverpool.”

Mark Bright (@Mark__Bright) is upset with a certain Arsenal striker: “Fcol Giroud, messed my predictions up now you egg, good goal though, he sent Kolo to the corner shop, #LFC destroyed 4-1”

Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) is impressed: “Four world class goals – Breathtaking football- Arsenal flying !!”

Former Arsenal star Ray Parlour (@RealRomfordPele) is a happy chap: “Great performance @Arsenal we love you Arsenal we do. Well done Lads. #PremierLeague”
