Piers Morgan took to social media to express his delight with Arsenal’s performance as they claimed a 2-0 win over Newcastle United to move up to third place in the Premier League.

Arsenal thought that they had taken the lead early on when Aaron Ramsey fired home, however the goal was disallowed after Sokratis was adjudged to have committed a foul in the box.

The Gunners then did take the lead in the 30th minute when Ramsey fired home a cool finish in off the post after a sweeping counter-attack from the Gunners.

Alexandre Lacazette then added a second with a brilliant chipped finish in the 83rd minute.

Celebrity Arsenal fan Morgan regularly takes to social media to comment on the Gunners’ performances.

And former Daily Mirror editor Morgan was clearly impressed by what he saw from the north London side in the first half.

Morgan wrote on Twitter: “Arsenal playing with terrific energy & drive. Even Ozil’s running around like a blue-arsed fly. #AFCvNUFC.”

Earlier, after Ramsey scored his opener, Morgan tweeted: “Hi @SpursOfficial – #MindTheGap.”

After Lacazette’s goal, Morgan added on Twitter: “BOOOOM!!! 2-0. Brilliant finish by ⁦@LacazetteAlex⁩. Love this performance tonight – we look like a proper team again. #afc.”

Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Everton.

The Gunners will then turn their attentions to the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final clash against Napoli at The Emirates on Thursday 11 April.
