Piers Morgan names greatest ever Arsenal XI with two current stars… but fans stunned by one shock omission
ARSENAL superfan Piers Morgan has named his all-time starting XI – but Gunners fans are up in arms over a shock omission.
Sun columnist Morgan is no stranger to giving his opinions on the north Londoners’ fortunes, which he’s regularly shared on Twitter since the latter part of the Arsene Wenger era.

And after getting wind of SunSport’s combined greatest Gunners XI, Morgan has named his own.
Long-time Gooner Morgan opted to deploy a 4-4-2 formation for his dream club XI.
He named former England defender David Seaman in goal behind a back four of Lee Dixon, Tony Adams, David O’Leary and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Club legend Patrick Vieira anchors Morgan’s midfielder along with fellow Frenchman Emmanuel Petit.
Robert Pires and Bukayo Saka occupied the wings, filling the left and right flanks respectively.
And up front, Morgan, unsurprisingly, had club icons Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry leading the line.
The majority of the Emirates faithful were in agreement with all but one of his selections, taking umbrage at his selection of Zinchenko ahead of Ashley Cole.
One of his followers tweeted: “Lol Zinchenko.”

Another said: “Cole was better.”
And another said: “Ashley Cole far better than Zinchenko.”
One remarked: “Ashley Cole has to be there, as much as it pains me to say it.”
Another chimed in: “Zinchenko over Ashley Cole?”
Premier League leaders Arsenal will be back in action a fortnight on Saturday, welcoming relegation battlers Leeds United to the Emirates.
