EPL: Rio Ferdinand, Piers Morgan react as Arsenal beats Crystal Palace


Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, and English broadcaster, Piers Morgan, have reacted to Arsenal’s Premier League 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace in the Premier League’s first game of the new season at Selhurst Park on Friday night.

Gabriel Martinelli opened the scoring for Arsenal after 20 minutes following a well-worked corner routine.

Crystal Palace put some pressure on Mikel Arteta’s side defence in the second half.

However, an unfortunate own goal from Marc Guehi secured all three points for the Gunners to kickstart their campaign.

After the win, Ferdinand tweeted that Arsenal is top of the league with a shock-faced emoji.

“Raaaaaaaa Arsenal top of the League,” Ferdinand wrote on Twitter.

On his part, Morgan tweeted: “Excellent away win by Arsenal. We look so much stronger with Jesus, Zinchenko & Saliba. Well done @m8arteta.”
