Piers Morgan hits back as Everton troll TalkTV host, Arsenal fan claims Gunners were ‘bullied’ and Chelsea legend John Terry also responds
Everton followed Piers Morgan on Twitter after their win over his beloved Arsenal – and Chelsea legend John Terry loved it too.
Sean Dyche had an immediate impact in his first game in charge at Goodison Park, overseeing a 1-0 win over the Premier League leaders.
James Tarkowski scored the game’s only goal, overtaking Martin Odegaard from a corner kick to hand Arsenal their second Premier League defeat of the season.
It was a fiery display from the home side, who were roared by their fans throughout the game in a stark change of tone from the usual boos this season.
But TalkTV host and huge Gooner Morgan was furious with the outcome and made his feelings known on Twitter.
He posted: “Arsenal’s dismal performance today – we were bullied by one of the worst teams in the Premier League. Unexplainable.”
And to add: “I’m not going to win the League playing like that.”
Everton’s social team wasted no time in responding, however, citing tweeting the message along with a GIF of Dyche smiling at the camera in the snow.
Many Twitter users seemed to love it, including Chelsea legend John Terry, who couldn’t help himself.
He responded with a trio of eye emojis.
And Morgan replied, “No. NOW.”
Morgan also responded to the Toffees, writing: ‘See how arrogant you feel when we win the League and you get relegated…’
Arsenal have failed to beat Everton at Goodison Park in their last six outings as that result could have serious ramifications for the Premier League title.
Mikel Arteta’s men could have taken an eight-point lead over Manchester City, who can now cut the gap to two if they beat Tottenham on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Everton will be hoping they generate some momentum with the win – especially as they face a beleaguered Liverpool next in the Premier League.
But Dyche insisted all the praise must go to the players despite the gigantic change in mentality in the space of a few days under his stewardship.
He told BT Sport: “It’s all about the players and they’re the focus for me. They’ve taken a lot this week. The minimum required is maximum effort and we saw that today.
“They have been in a position where it has not been pleasant for anyone. I still believe we can improve with our game.
“I am delighted for James Tarkowski. I took great pleasure in the development of his career.
“It gives us a platform to move forward. We have worked a lot this week. To get a win against the top of the league…we managed to calm things down. I want them to understand the basics of the game.”
