'Get a grip' – Piers Morgan slams Arsenal's 'diabolical' defending in X-rated blast after conceding at Aston Villa | The Sun
PIERS MORGAN slammed Arsenal's "diabolical" defending in an X-rated twitter rant after seeing his side concede after five minutes against Aston Villa.
The Gunners are going through a rough February, failing to win in the three games played so far.
Arsenal fell to a 1-0 defeat to Everton at the start of the month, followed by a 1-1 home draw to Brentford.
And a home defeat to Premier League title rivals Manchester City cost Arsenal top spot in midweek.
Against Villa, Mikel Arteta's men couldn't shake off their poor form and conceded after five minutes at Villa.
Ollie Watkins got the goal – but Arsenal's defenders didn't cover themselves in glory.

Piers later added: "Teams have worked out that if they bully us, we’re easily bullied.
