Piers Morgan responds to Lord Sugar as Arsenal draw with Man United
The outspoken Arsenal supporter responds to his Tottenham rival as Arsene Wenger's side draw with Manchester United
Piers Morgan renewed his Twitter rivalry with Lord Sugar on Saturday afternoon as Arsenal drew 1-1 with Manchester United.
The Gunners travelled to Old Trafford in the day’s early kick-off looking to capitalise on the Red Devils’ poor form and secure a first Premier League win in the red half of Manchester in over a decade.
Antonio Valencia had a first-half penalty claim turned down by referee Andre Marriner after the Ecuador international tangled with Arsenal full-back Nacho Monreal.
However, the home side made the breakthrough in the 70th minute after Ander Herrera teed up Juan Mata and the Spain midfielder placed a finish past Arsenal star Petr Cech.
Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar couldn’t resist sending a tweet to outspoken Arsenal shareholder Morgan after Mata’s opener.
Yes Man U 1 -0 how you feeling @piersmorgan

The Gunners supporter had a quick response of The Apprentice star – though.
I'm relaxed because we have the best manager in the League, according to you. https://t.co/wyGG27RnoJ

However, Arsenal substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain crossed for Olivier Giroud and the France striker levelled with less than 90 seconds remaining in normal time.
The Gunners are six points ahead of Manchester United in the Premier League title race.
