The weekend's Premier League action gave the table a shake-up at the summit.
Arsenal dropped into third place as Liverpool and Manchester City's respective 3-1 and 4-2 victories over Cardiff City and Fulham saw them leapfrog the North Londoners to take control of the division, albeit potentially only temporarily depending on how Arsenal perform against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium this evening.
Manchester United also won 3-1 on Saturday, against West Ham United at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Danny Welbeck, Adnan Januzaj and Ashley Young - it was their second successive victory in the league after two defeats on the trot.
However, despite their point accumulation, the reigning Premier League champions are still no better off position-wise than they were before, much to the delight of Piers Morgan, who required no hesitation in sending a public message to his favourite frenemy Robin van Persie.
Just checking in @Persie_Official ...still 8th, right?— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 22, 2013
Thus far, the Manchester United forward, currently sidelined with a hip/groin injury, has not replied to the renowned Arsenal fan and television anchor, however, could that change should Morgan's beloved Arsenal fail to get a result against Jose Mourinho's Blues tonight?
