Relive Liverpool v Arsenal through Piers Morgan’s rollercoaster Twitter feed, from the half-time taunt to the “torture” tweet
SUN columnist Piers Morgan didn’t hold back as he watched an absolute roller coaster ride of a clash between Liverpool and his beloved Arsenal.
Piers saw the Gunners’ Premier League title hopes dashed after a last-minute 2-2 draw against the Reds at Anfield.
The TV personality’s pre-game confidence paid off after just eight minutes as Gabriel Martinelli put the north Londoners ahead.
Mikel Arteta’s men then doubled their lead just 20 minutes later with Gabriel Jesus showing quite the timing on Easter Sunday – an irony caught on by many, including the TalkTV presenter.
But Mohamed Salah put the Merseysiders back in contention with a goal just three minutes from half-time.
However, Piers felt confident at half-time as he indulged with a cup of coffee on his favorite mug and taunted Liverpool fans… a little too soon.
Tension built after that as the players slapped each other in the face and the 58-year-old begged usual suspect Granit Xhaka not to look red.
But first-half dominance gave way to a “torture” that became too much for the SunSport columnist, who almost saw his team collapse in the 54th minute when Salah missed a penalty.
Aaron Ramsdale went on to produce some key saves that led to the channel channeling into its inner Meg Ryan.
But Sally quickly transformed into Jack Torrance when Arsenal conceded a last-minute equalizer from Roberto Firmino just three minutes from time.
Fans quickly took to social media to make their voices heard, giving Piers a cheeky swipe.
One supporter tweeted, “That came.”
Another wrote: “North London, the kings of bottling.”
A third commented: “The runner-up is pretty good nonetheless.”

This fan said: “I’ve always said Arsenal will bottle it and so happy we made that possible.”
And he wrote: “The gagging has begun.”
Arsenal are now six points clear of Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
City will also host the Premier League leaders on April 26 at the Etihad.
