Piers Morgan concedes the Premier League title after 'depressing' Arsenal suffer back-to-back defeats

Piers Morgan concedes the Premier League title after 'depressing' Arsenal suffer back-to-back defeats

Piers Morgan has had his say.

Piers Morgan has branded Arsenal as 'depressing' and 'dreadful' after their 2-1 defeat against Fulham - and says they won't win the Premier League this season.

Mikel Arteta's side could have ended 2023 on top of the table with a victory at Craven Cottage, and took the lead after just five minutes through Bukayo Saka.

But Raul Jimenez equalised on 29 minutes, before Bobby De Cordova-Reid took advantage of some poor defending from a corner to fire home from close range in the second half.

Arsenal had opportunities but couldn't get back into the contest, with Marco Silva's side securing a deserved win to end a positive 2023.

The Gunners, meanwhile, end the year in fourth place in the Premier League, and will be five points behind leaders Liverpool if Jurgen Klopp's men win their game in hand against Newcastle on New Year's Day.

It is their second straight defeat, having lost 2-0 to West Ham at home on Thursday.

Taking to X (Twitter) after the game, Arsenal fan Morgan was unsurprisingly critical of his team - and has declared their title hopes over already.

He fumed: "Another inexplicably dreadful performance.

"You can't lose to Aston Villa, West Ham and Fulham in the space of three weeks and expect to win the Premier League. It's over before we even get to 2024."

During the match, he branded the Gunners as 'depressing', and said after Fulham's second goal: "That was coming. Arsenal look a pale imitation of last year's swaggering team. Depressing to watch."

Arteta and his side must now wait until January 20 for their next Premier League game, with an FA Cup third round tie against none other than Liverpool taking place before then on January 7.

The Gunners, therefore, could look slightly different when they kick off against Crystal Palace, with almost three weeks available to bring in reinforcements during the transfer window before the date of that fixture.
