Piers Morgan has taken to social media to vent his frustration after Arsenal slumped to a 1-0 loss to Stoke City in their second Premier League game of the season on Saturday afternoon.

After a goalless first half at the bet365 Stadium, summer signing Jese broke the deadlock in the 47th minute with a neat finish past Petr Cech.

Arsenal had plenty of possession but struggled to find a way past Jack Butland, who was in superb form in the Stoke City goal.

Alexandre Lacazette thought he had equalised when he fired into the roof of the net, only for the goal to be disallowed for offside.

And celebrity Arsenal fan Morgan was clearly not impressed by what he was seeing as he took to Twitter during the game.

Morgan wrote on Twitter: “That was a brilliant ONSIDE goal. Linesman, you are an imbecile. #lacazette #SCFCvAFC.”

Arsenal must now dust themselves down as they look to get back to winning ways when they take on Liverpool at Anfield next Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners are preparing to have to compete in the Europa League next month after they finished fifth in the Premier League table last term.
