Laura Woods destroyed Piers Morgan with a savage put-down at the end of a debate on Manchester United and Arsenal.

Morgan revealed on talkSPORT that he’s convinced Arsenal are on course to win the Premier League this season and of course believes Manchester United have no hope without Cristiano Ronaldo.

It was Morgan’s interview with Ronaldo that was the final nail in the coffin of the striker’s United career and saw him move to Al Nassr after the Red Devils ripped up his contract.

Erik ten Hag’s side have been on the up and up without CR7 with some tipping them for a title challenge.

They now sit nine points behind leaders Arsenal, but they could cut that deficit to just three points come Sunday evening, as they head to Crystal Palace on Wednesday before the crunch clash against the Gunners on Super Sunday.

Woods was full of praise for Ten Hag and United but Morgan is convinced they will regret forcing Ronaldo out of the club.

“Why don’t you come back and ask me at 6.30pm on Sunday and see how cocky they’re all feeling at United then?” Morgan said to Woods. “I’ve been watching it all. They’ve been beating a few teams and they had a good result against City.

“Let’s not get the bunting out just yet, I think we’re going to absolutely demolish them on Sunday and then at that moment I will remind them that they managed to lever out the greatest footballer in history because they thought that was a great idea.”

Fellow Arsenal fan Woods then asked Morgan: “If at the end of the season, Manchester United finish in the top four, will you come back on and apologise to Erik ten Hag?”

“Absolutely not,” he replied. “But when we hammer them on Sunday and when we win the league and when United do not win the league because they got rid of the GOAT, I expect Erik ten Hag to get on bended knee and beg me for forgiveness and apologise to Cristiano Ronaldo for the shocking disrespect that he showed him.”

Woods then quickly and brutally resonded: “We’ll have to explain who you are to him first.”
