Piers Morgan Describes Arsenal Loss to Forest as ‘New Low Even by Wenger Standards’

Piers Morgan has described Arsenal‘s loss to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup as a ‘new low even by Wenger standards’.

The Good Morning Britain presenter was in his usual place watching on as the Gunners took on the English Championship outfit at the City Ground today.

It didn’t make for pretty viewing.

Arsene Wenger rang the changes for the game, failing to name one regular starter in an XI that included Theo Walcott, Mathieu Debuchy, Reiss Nelson and Per Mertesacker.

The French manager had to watch the game on from the stands as he starts a three-game ban for criticism of referees.

But his view didn’t matter as Arsenal lost 4-2 against a hungry, young Forest team – and their FA Cup dream for the season went up in smoke.

Morgan was always going to give an interesting take on the result and, as you’d expect, he went in hard on Wenger with his assessment:

Is it a new low by Wenger standards?

Regardless, Arsenal are out of the FA Cup and are now left to fight for a trophy in the Europa League or the Carabao Cup.

They’re already out of the English Premier League title race, but have a chance in the League Cup if they can get through a semi-final with Chelsea – which is no easy feat for a team as inconsistent as Arsenal are.
