Owen, Morgan and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal lose to Olympiacos
Michael Owen and Piers Morgan both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal lose 3-2 to Olympiacos in the Champions League
Arsenal are on the brink of elimination from the Champions League after a 3-2 loss to Olympiacos at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.
Theo Walcott cancelled out Felipe Pardo’s opener in north London, before Gunners goalkeeper David Ospina fumbled the ball over the line to hand the visitors the lead heading into half-time.
Alexis Sanchez headed home an equaliser in the 65th minute but Alfred Finnbogason poked the visitors ahead once again just one minute later.
The result left Arsenal bottom of Group F and in danger of being eliminated from Arsenal’s elite club competition.
The game inevitably prompted plenty of activity on Twitter, and here are some of our favourite updates.
