Piers Morgan: Why Arsenal are bunch of overpaid chokers

Piers Morgan slams Arsene Wenger's Arsenal players after Wednesday night's 2-1 loss to Swansea City

Piers Morgan has branded Arsenal as a “bunch of overpaid chokers” after Wednesday night’s 2-1 loss to Swansea City.

The Gunners succumbed to a second successive Premier League defeat in four days following Sunday’s 3-2 loss to top-four rivals Manchester United.

Joel Campbell gave the home side a first-half lead before Wayne Routledge levelled in north London as Arsene Wenger’s side attempted to end a three-game winless run.

However, Swansea captain Ashley Williams netted a second-half winner to secure a surprise 2-1 win for the Swans and leave third-placed Arsenal six points behind leaders Leicester City.

Unsurprisingly, outspoken Arsenal fan Morgan was ruthless in his assessment of the FA Cup holders on Thursday morning as he digested a potentially disastrous result in the Premier League title race.

Arsenal make the trip to second-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.
