Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has disclosed his conversation with West Ham manager David Moyes, imploring him to thwart Manchester City’s title ambitions.

With Moyes set to helm his last match for West Ham on Sunday, the West Ham manager will play his last game in charge of the Hammers, taking on Manchester City who needs a victory to win their fourth consecutive Premier League title.

Arsenal, clinging to a slender chance of winning their first league triumph in two decades, are banking on their London counterparts to secure at least a draw against City, while they confront Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

Morgan, who is a television personality is among the legion of Gunners fans fervently urging Moyes to deliver a monumental upset. Sharing insights from his encounter with Moyes on talkSPORT, Morgan revealed the departing Hammers boss’s determination to end his tenure on a high note.

“I randomly bumped into David Moyes the other day. We had a lovely chat and I sense, quite rightly, that he wants to go out with a bang,” Morgan disclosed.

“What better bang can he possibly go out with than dismantling City in their backyard and letting Arsenal win the league? What better way to say thank you, not just to David Moyes but to Declan Rice, the man who led you to European glory? The man who stood there week after week, holding you up as a team, carrying you on his shoulders.”


Expressing hope for a spirited West Ham performance, Piers Morgan emphasised the significance of the impending clash. “I think all bets are off on Sunday. I hope West Ham attack them and try and nick a goal,” he asserted.

Arsenal’s aspirations of league glory were dealt a severe blow by archrivals Tottenham, who succumbed to a 2-0 defeat against City, taking Pep Guardiola’s side to the top with one game remaining. Despite Spurs’ loss dashing their top-four hopes, jubilant reactions from their supporters drew criticism from Morgan, who deemed their response unsupportive.

“They should have got a point and that’s what disappoints me. If they’d have had the full support of their fans, which is what normal fans in that situation would have done if they were a club who wants to be one of the bigger clubs,” Morgan lamented. 

“The atmosphere was dreadful and the players did try hard. If you are one of those players and you’ve got a manager willing you to do everything you can, then you’ve got the fans literally silent and only erupting and chanting when City scored. What message does that send to the players?”
