Piers Morgan has apologised to Mikel Arteta following the club’s 3-1 win over Leicester City on Sunday.

Good Morning Britain presenter earlier took to Twitter to question Arteta’s decision of leaving such big-name figures like Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang out of first-team squad against the Foxes.

However, following the Gunner’s yesterday’s victory, Morgan told ITV: “I want to say good morning to Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.

“People are wondering why fans like me never get to be made managers of football teams. This is what I tweeted before kick-off yesterday:

“Saka, Partey and Aubameyang all on the bench?

“Against Leicester?

“Wrong call, Arteta.

“This is a six-point game – we should be putting out our best team from the start, or have we given up on the top four?’

“Well, we won 3-1 with that team. So I would like to humbly and grovelingly [sic] apologise. You were completely right with your team selection, you rest our best players, quite rightly, for the Europa and next league game.

“I take my hat off to you.

“That’s why you should really stay off Twitter, fans. Because the internet keeps receipts.”
