Put up a fight at least – Piers Morgan blasts Arsenal for ’embarrassing’ performance

British media personality and Arsenal loyalist, Piers Morgan has slammed the club’s players over their poor display against Manchester City in Wednesday’s Premier League fixture.

Arsenal remain two points clear of City at the top of the table, but Pep Guardiola’s men, who have won their last seven in the league have two games in hand.

Reacting to the defeat, Morgan described the performance of Arsenal stars against Man City as ’embarrassing and disappointing.’

The broadcaster expressed displeasure with his favourite team’s outing at the Etihad as the host stormed to a 3-0 lead within 54 minutes to further loosen the Gunners’ grip on the Premier League title this season.

The encounter ended in a 4-1 win for Guardiola’s side as Erling Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne and John Stones scored for Man City.

Morgan furious with the outcome, tweeted: “This is making me sicker than Monday’s dodgy sushi.

“We’re just giving this away. The ball, the match, the Premier League. Embarrassing capitulation by Arsenal. So disappointing.”

He added; “At least put up a bloody fight, Arsenal.

“I don’t mind losing to a better team, which City clearly are, but I do mind losing so spinelessly.”
