Piers Morgan gave an honest assessment of his beloved Arsenal as they came up short in the Premier League title race by capitulating at home against Brighton.
Morgan, who was a vocal critic of Arteta before their blockbuster start to the current campaign, was in no mood to look back on the season with a positive light on Saturday.
The Gunners now sit four points behind Manchester City having played a game more thanks to their 3-0 home defeat – during which their most outspoken fan took to social media.

Piers said: "This is a bloody awful performance right when we least needed one."
Rival fans didn't have much sympathy for the talkTV host, two months after he insisted Arsenal would hold off the challenge of City to become champions.
Having defended Cristiano Ronaldo against Manchester United fans he said: "Arsenal ARE going to win the League… and when we do, I’m going to drive straight up to Old Trafford and do a one-man conga at the Stretford End culminating in a massive SIIIIUUUUUU!!!"

Following the goals from Julio Enciso, Deniz Undav and Pervis Estupinan, captain Martin Odegaard spoke to Sky Sports and admitted the title race now feels over.
He said: "Yeah it feels like that [whether the title is over]. It is going to be very difficult now we have to be honest. It is tough to take.
"It is not a good feeling at the moment. The way we played, particularly in the second half, I don't know what happened to be honest. It feels like there is no hope now.
"In the first half we did a lot of good things and had moments to create big chances but we gave them more and more momentum in the second half."
