Piers Morgan admits Arsenal have bottled the Premier League title after Man City defeat
Piers Morgan believes Arsenal’s chances of Premier League glory are all but over after their defeat against Manchester City.
The Gunners were picked apart by their title challengers, losing 4-1 to Pep Guardiola’s troops on Wednesday night.
John Stones, Erling Haaland and two goals from Kevin De Bruyne ensured Man City took control of the title race.
The Gunners are still two points clear at the top of the table, but with City’s two games in hand it seems only inevitable they will go on to lift the trophy again.
TalkTV host Morgan joined the talkSPORT Breakfast gang and admitted that their title rivals played like champions at the Etihad.
He said: “We choked a two goal lead against Liverpool, we choked a two goal lead against West Ham, struggled to even draw with Southampton, and now were absolutely destroyed by Man City.
“That’s four in four games. I’m afraid there’s no easy way to say it… we have bottled it.
“I do think it comes down to mentality. We’ve got the ability, we’ve got the talent, we’ve got the players, the youthful zest and energy. We’ve got all those things.
“I don’t think anybody thought that, man for man, Man City’s players were way better than Arsenal.
“Truthfully, after that game, every single City player played immeasurably better than the Arsenal players.
“The best example was that this kid [Manuel] Akanji completely neutered [Bukayo] Saka. Saka didn’t get a kick all game and he’s been one of the best players in Europe.
“[Gabriel] Martinelli didn’t get a kick, neither did Gabriel Jesus. None of them did. [Thomas] Partey didn’t have a good game, the defence was awful, [Oleksandr] Zinchenko didn’t have a good game. I could go on.
“The whole team were frankly hopeless and I do think it’s a mentality thing.
“I look at the City team and even in the tunnel they reminded me of those Wenger title winning teams in 1997/98, 2002 team, the Invincibles.
“Paul Scholes once said to me that in the Arsenal tunnel you used to see a bunch of champions staring at you.
“Last night, Arsenal looked like frightened rabbits in the tunnel and looked over and saw a bunch of champions staring at them.
“They played like a bunch of frightened rabbits. They played a team who not only are the champions right now but believe they deserve to be champions and are going to be champions.”
