Laura Woods brutally destroyed Piers Morgan live on talkSPORT after he said Erik ten Hag "should beg for forgiveness" if Arsenal win the Premier League.
Staunch Arsenal supporter Morgan joined the breakfast show to talk about Arsenal's win over Spurs in the North London derby, a result which moved them eight points clear of Manchester City.
The 57-year-old also talked up Declan Rice to Arsenal rumours and obviously had a lot to say about Cristiano Ronaldo, who he did that infamous interview with which led to his exit from Manchester United and subsequent switch to Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo had to make do with a bench role in his second season back at United and did not see eye-to-eye with Ten Hag.
The Red Devils have climbed to within one point of City after beating their rivals 2-1 in Saturday's derby at Old Trafford.
Morgan is not having United as title contenders and claimed Ten Hag should have to get on his knees and beg him for forgiveness.
He said: “When we win the league and when United do not win the league because they got rid of the GOAT, I expect Erik ten Hag to get on bended knee beg me for forgiveness and apologise to Cristiano Ronaldo for the shocking disrespect that he showed him.”
However, fellow Gooner Woods put Morgan in his place. "We'll have to explain to him who you are first," she replied, laughing.
Morgan saw the funny side and right near the end of the chat, said, "Oh don't worry I think he knows who I am."
Earlier in the interview Morgan predicted Arsenal would rinse United at the Emirates on Sunday and asked if anyone from United's side could provide the goals Ronaldo delivered last season.
"Let’s not get the bunting out just yet, I think we’re going to absolutely demolish them on Sunday and then at that moment I will remind them that they managed to lever out the greatest footballer in history because they thought that was a great idea.
“The other question I would ask is will any of this brilliant new United team score as many goals for United this season as Ronaldo did for them last season?”
Woods interjected again though, chiming in to say, "Rashford might!".
The England star has rediscovered his confidence and his winner against City took him 16 goals in 26 appearances.
At this stage last season, Ronaldo had 14 goals in 24 games.
