PIERS MORGAN thinks Mikel Arteta has a ‘ridiculous allegience’ to Kai Havertz and wants ‘Arsenal fans to seriously consider’ his ‘Master Plan.’
The TalkTV presenter thought Arsenal’s impressive win over Liverpool showcased their best football to date under Arteta, but there were things they needed to ‘tweak and sort’.
He said: “I’ve come up with a Master Plan because I am sick and tired of Arsenal not having a proper striker.
“I think that Arteta has a blind spot about this.
“He has a ridiculous allegiance to Havertz who I just don’t think is good enough.
He went on to explain his Master Plan, saying: “I think after what happened on Sunday we have to have a midfield with Jorginho and Rice.
“Jorginho is very calm and does his stuff brilliantly, but he also brings out the best in Rice.”
Morgan reckoned City had not been at their all-time best this season which had given other teams a glimpse of opportunity.
But Arsenal’s lack of a proper striker that was holding them back.
Morgan had also come up with a watertight plan to make amends for Arsenal not having their own Erling Haaland, announcing: “Now, up front, here’s what I’m gonna do:
“I think Martinelli should pull a Thierry Henry and start playing down the middle.
“Saka on the right.
“Trossard on the left.
“I would bench Jesus.
“I would send Havertz back to Chelsea.”
The straight-talking Morgan went on roast the 24-year-old even more harshly, saying: “We all know that Havertz is not a proper striker.
“He just doesn’t want to finish.
“We are not gonna win the league with Kai Havertz leading the line.
“Jesus, by his own admission, is not a natural goal scorer, so we don’t have one.”
Havertz was a £65m summer signing from Chelsea and has only scored four goals this season and registered just the one assist.
Morgan’s solution to Havertz’ inability to score is to use Martinelli on the inside and Trossard on the left, a move inspired by the goal he scored on Sunday.
The TalkTV presenter moved on to vent at Jamie Carragher, who deemed Arsenal’s post-match celebrations on Sunday as excessive.Piers Morgan released his wrath on Jamie Carragher[/caption]
The former Liverpool player told Martin Odegaard to ‘get down the tunnel’ after The Gunners’ captain took photographs of the Arsenal’s iconic photographer with the fans.
Carragher went on to berate Arteta’s touchline antics, provoking an outburst from Morgan, who thought the ex-Red’s party pooping was ‘absolutely pathetic.’
He went on, saying: “We are allowed to celebrate a great win.”
“Jamie Carragher, shut up.
In Morgan’s eyes, celebrating a victory was more important than ever, given VAR had ‘sucked all the joy and life out of goal scoring.’
“Now we have to wait ten minutes [to celebrate] to see whether some clod in an a little office somewhere has decided that someone’s erect nipple is one inch ahead of his head.
“I think the whole thing has got completely ridiculous.”
