In an interview with talksport, Piers Morgan’s love for Arsenal started in 1971 and this is what he had to say
My team is Arsenal and it goes back to 1971 when we won the double and I was six years old. Charlie George scored that amazing 25-yard screamer at Wembley. And that was it. I was in love. With Arsenal. With Charlie, with Frank McLintock, with Bob Wilson, with George Graham and Pat Rice. And that was the start of a 49-year love affair, with all the torment that love brings.
It was an eventful night for the side of Mikel Arteta with Thomas Partey’s first start since his transfer deadline day move from Atletico Madrid as Arsenal came from behind to down Rapid Vienna 2-1 in the opening round of the Europa League group stage matches attended by 3000 fans.
