“The Least Surprising Revelation of the Millennium”

Piers Morgan didn’t hold back after Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat by Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday.

The Gunners were dominated by the Eagles at Selhurst Park as they outclassed the north London side in every way.

Patrick Vieira’s side started aggressively, giving their opponents no time on the ball. Their pass was spot on in the final third as Arsenal struggled with the intensity at Selhurst Park.

The Gunners trailed 2-0 in the first 25 minutes and never recovered after that. Palace then added a third in the second half to add to the Gunners’ woes.

Mikel Arteta’s side are now fifth in the league table and have a lower goal difference compared to their arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who are bottom of the Champions League.

Morgan, who is an Arsenal fan, berated the Gunners for meekly surrendering to Vieira’s side and was not surprised by the result.

Vieira’s Palace gives us a lesson in aggression, desire and physicality. Least Surprising Revelation of the Millennium. #CRYARS

He tweeted:

“Vieira’s Palace teaches us a lesson in aggression, desire and physicality. The least surprising revelation of the millennium.”

He also criticized the Gunners for not replacing Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang when Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah fired blanks again.

He wrote on Twitter:

“BREAKING: Lacazette has now completed 18 HOURS of Premier League football without scoring in open play. But yeah, I’m so glad we got rid of Aubameyang.”


Arsenal were surprised by Crystal Palace’s quick start

The Gunners were perhaps surprised by Crystal Palace’s quick start to the game as they pressed from the front.

Arsenal, who are generally the team that dish out the pressing, had a taste of their own medicine as the likes of Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes lacked time on the ball.

It took the Gunners 28 minutes to get their first shot and by that point they were already two goals down and staring at an away loss.

Mikel Arteta chose not to start with Gabriel Martinelli and without his energy they struggled up front.

The Brazilian’s second-half arrival prompted a slight change in the Gunners’ attacking pace, but by then it was too late.

The defeat meant Arteta’s side stayed fifth, level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham. The Gunners have a game on their hands but some tough games lie ahead.
