Piers Morgan joined ecstatic Arsenal fans in declaring that the Gunners can win the Premier League despite Manchester City’s “bubble bursting.” Their 1-0 triumph at Leeds was followed by City’s 1-0 loss at Liverpool, as both Premier League matches were marred by drama and controversy.
And, while famous Gunners supporter Morgan claims to be “trying to keep cool” about their championship hopes, he definitely isn’t. It is their ninth victory in 10 Premier League games this season extended their lead at the top, while second-placed City lost for the first time.
