Chelsea supporters couldn’t contain themselves when they saw Piers Morgan’s latest claim about the Arsenal team.
Morgan took to Twitter following the Gunner’s 3-2 Europa League victory over Benfica last night.
He suggested it was ‘One of Arsenal’s greatest European nights’, after they scored an 87th minute winner to send them through to the next round.
This brought a bombardment of comments from Blues fans who struggled to see anything other than the funny side to Morgan’s statement.
Arsenal did look like they were crashing out of the competition right up until Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s late strike.
They went behind on ‘away’ goals, with Benfica scoring twice either side of half time.
Although their comeback was admirable, to suggest a round of 32 Europa League tie was one of the ‘greatest’ moments in their esteemed history was a little far-fetched.
They have finished runners-up in the Champions League and UEFA Cup before.
When compared to Chelsea’s achievements on the continental stage, Arsenal’s efforts look pretty minuscule.
That night in Munich will never be topped from a club perspective, although winning the Europa League twice probably comes pretty close.
Especially when one of those victories came against Arsenal back in 2019.

However hard Chelsea may be struggling, we can always rely on Arsenal to make us feel better.
Perhaps that’s a little harsh; we can always rely on Arsenal’s fan base to make us feel better.
I’ll allow Morgan to tweet again when his team has won both of Europe’s most prestigious items of silverware.
