Piers Morgan blamed Arsene Wenger for the lack of home fans at The Emirates on Monday night during Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over West Brom in the Premier League.

There were a noticeable number of empty seats in the stands at The Emirates as Wenger’s men secured a home victory to move up to seventh place in the table.

Arsenal took the lead in the 20th minute when Alexandre Lacazette pounced on the rebound after Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick bounced off the bar.

The summer signing then doubled the home side’s lead from the penalty spot in the 67th minute to confirm the victory for the Gunners.

Celebrity Arsenal fan Morgan has been one of Wenger’s harshest critics over the last few seasons following the Gunners’ failure to win the Premier League since their move to The Emirates in 2006.

And the former Daily Mirror editor took to social media to point the finger at Wenger during Monday night’s Premier League clash.

Morgan wrote on Twitter: “Emirates Stadium half empty tonight, for a Premier League game.

“That’s what 13 yrs of failure brings you. #afc.”

Arsenal return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they take on BATE Borisov.

The Gunners will then take on Brighton at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon in their final Premier League game before the international break.
