Piers Morgan: Liverpool will finish above Arsenal

Piers Morgan

Arsenal fan believes in form Liverpool will overtake the Gunners.

One point off the top of the Premier League, in with a chance of silverware in two cup competitions, yet supporters are still booing.

Welcome to modern day football as we know it, when a home draw against the current, if soon to be deposed champions, is enough to turn the home support against the club.

Seems unthinkable, when you contrast the situation to that of clubs like Leeds United in the Championship who don't even know who their owners are and look set for another year in the wilderness.

The personification of the modern fan, demanding instant gratification and throwing his toys out of the pram if it does not arrive, is Arsenal supporters Piers Morgan.

Not a fan match-going Gooners would identify themselves with on any level, his seemingly bi-polar Tweets which flip and contrast when the club are winning or losing are almost tragic in themselves, because you know by time the very next match comes around, he will be correcting himself.

His latest bold prediction is to claim that Arsenal, the current second placed side in the Premier League, will finish below the team that battered them 5-1 at the weekend, Liverpool.

The Reds certainly have the momentum, and it's easy to see why given the form of Brendan Rodgers's side he may feel that way, even if his track record shows he'll be falling over his feet to contradict himself should the Gunners knock Liverpool out of the FA Cup this weekend.

Yet there's a real chance of truth to his claim. There are now just three points separating the two sides, and lest not forget, back when the calendar saw Christmas pass a couple of months back now, it was Liverpool who sat above the Gunners on goal difference.

Arsenal face a rampant Bayern Munich side twice over the next few months, and win or lose, who knows what that may take out of them. Liverpool meanwhile have no such distraction.

Liverpool have propelled themselves into the title race, but amid their frustration - perhaps Arsenal fans, like their side, should have a little more belief.
