Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shut down Piers Morgan’s attempt to drive a wedge between the former Arsenal man and the fans on Sunday night.

For the most part, Arsenal fans are feeling pretty harmonious at the moment.

Mikel Arteta’s side are in the top-four with games in hand on those below them, and the very real prospect of the return of Champions League football.

But Piers Morgan has to find some reason to whine, so he made one up.

Morgan claimed on Twitter that Arsenal fans “have spent the past [two hours] gloating about why we’re so much better without Aubameyang and they’re so glad he’s gone”, before adding “I miss you, Auba”.

That is obviously not true, with the majority of Arsenal fans too focused on enjoying another win to be worrying about petty shots at a player who left on good terms with the supporters.

Fortunately, Aubameyang himself responded to the tweet to suggest there are no hard feelings, and the move has worked out for everyone.

“Thanks, Piers, but sometimes everyone benefits from a separation,” Aubameyang said. “Most important is that everyone is happy now and we had good times that I will [not] forget.”

Morgan’s original tweet was one of his usual pathetic attempts to fabricate a divide between like-minded supporters, whilst Aubameyang’s response is a classy indication that he’s not going to help that happen.

Arsenal have nine wins in 11 league games since Aubameyang left the team, and Aubameyang has six goals in his first nine games for Barcelona. Everyone’s a winner, and let’s hope it stays that way.
