Piers Morgan’s two-word reaction to Arsenal’s 3-1 loss to Man United
The Arsenal shareholder slams Arsene Wenger's side with a one-word reaction to their 3-1 loss to Manchester United
Piers Morgan embarked on a foul-mouthed Twitter rant after Arsenal’s title hopes were extinguished on Saturday evening following a 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
The Red Devils made the trip to The Emirates looking to end the north London’s side 13-game winning run and secure a fourth successive top-flight victory.
Manchester United made the breakthrough in the fourth minute thanks to Ecuador international Antonio Valencia before Jesse Lingard doubled the visitors’ lead.
Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette combined in brilliant fashion to halve the deficit at the start of the second half and offer Arsenal hope of an unlikely comeback.
But Paul Pogba’s powerful run teed up Lingard to score his second goal of the Premier League clash to seal three points for Jose Mourinho’s men in their must-win fixture.
However, the France international’s game ended on a sour note following a straight red card for a reckless tackle on Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin.
Arsenal dropped to fifth place in the Premier League table following their loss and 12 points behind Manchester City, who host West Ham United on Sunday.
And outspoken Gunners shareholder Morgan wasn’t impressed with Arsenal’s performance against Manchester United after a demoralising 3-1 loss to their title rivals.
Morgan wrote on Twitter: “F*******K. #afc”
