‘Who needs Mykhailo Mudryk?’ – Piers Morgan jokes about failed Arsenal transfer after Martin Odegaard goal against Tottenham and also taunts Harry Kane

    Piers Morgan joked Arsenal didn’t need to sign Mykhailo Mudryk anyway after Martin Odegaard’s strike against Tottenham.

    The Gunners raced to a two-goal lead in the first half against Tottenham as they look to tighten their grip on the Premier League title race.

    Martin Odegaard has been in fine form this season

    Hugo Lloris was guilty of a clanger after Bukayo Saka’s cross hit the Frenchman before going in.

    Odegaard doubled their lead with a beautiful effort from 25 yards out – his eighth goal in the Premier League.

    “0-2!!!!! Brilliant by Odegaard… who needs Mudryk?” Morgan tweeted.

    Morgan’s joke comes just hours after Chelsea stole in ahead of Arsenal at the last moment to land Mudryk – who had been heavily linked with a Gunners switch throughout the month.

    The Blues pulled off a dramatic transfer hijack by gazumping Arsenal’s offer and the Ukraine international was announced as a new signing midway through the 1-0 win against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

    Morgan had earlier accused Arsenal of being ‘weak’ for allowing Chelsea to nip in ahead of them.

    But the TalkTV host was in a good mood soon after as his side outplayed their rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    He made a string of tweets as he revelled in Arsenal’s domination over their biggest rivals, posting: “Hadn’t realised just how terrible Spurs are this season. Most amusing.”

    Another tweet saw him post a picture of Harry Kane as a young fan in an Arsenal kit, with the caption: “Oh Harry… BIG mistake.”

    While the Gunners look in fine fettle, Tottenham have serious problems with a top four spot now looking more and more difficult.
