Piers Morgan revises his top six prediction: Where did he place Arsenal?

Piers Morgan

Arsenal fan Piers Morgan was his usual vocal self on Twitter during the Gunners disappointing loss at Liverpool on Saturday.

Despite following Arsenal through every fixture via his Twitter account, Piers Morgan likes to dish out his fair share of complaints.

Due to his current American location, Piers Morgan was up in the early hours of the morning – 4.45am to be precise – to watch his beloved Gunners.

Soon after kick-off at Anfield, the showbiz presenter probably wished he hadn’t bothered.

Liverpool raced into a 4-0 lead after just 20 minutes, displaying flair, trickery, decisive passing and explosion on the counter-attack. It was quite a spectacle, and Arsenal simply had no answer.

Two goals from Martin Skrtel within the first 10 minutes made the task difficult, and it is possible that Piers Morgan missed the third and fourth following his number of twitter rants.

A number of tweets involving the words ‘pub team', 'disgrace', 'fury', 'blew it', 'new striker' and 'season over’ were all among the heavy criticism.

After finally proceeding to ask for the umpteenth time why Arsene Wenger deserves a new contract, Morgan tweeted his revised top six prediction for the end of the season – but where did he place Arsenal?

Despite the heavy defeat and clear lack of striking possibility, Morgan still believes his side are capable of finishing in the top four, Manchester United and Spurs will fail to make the Champions League places and that Manchester City will be crowned champions.

Following their loss, the Gunners have dropped down to second in the table behind new leaders Chelsea. With a comfortable 10-point gap over 5th place Everton, it is looking fairly likely that Arsenal are safe for a top four spot.

However, if Arsene Wenger’s side are to mount a real title-challenge going into the business end of the season, they will have to be tighter at the back on the road, as tough away games against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Stoke City and Everton will go a long way in deciding their fate.
