Chelsea's transfer activities

The Blues' manoeuvres in the transfer market have been more astute than their performance on the pitch this season. Graham Potter's side are stuck in 10th place after a disappointing run of results.

Morgan jumped in to remind Chelsea that no matter how much they spend, they are still miles from Arsenal, who currently lead the EPL table. The controversial journalist is a known fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and the Gunners.

"Reminder to Chelsea fans: we’re top of the League, you’re 10th, and we’re 21pts ahead of you with a game in hand. So spend all the gazillions you want but what you REALLY need to buy is a telescope to look up at Arsenal," said Morgan on his Twitter account.

Terry fires back at Morgan

Terry did not take the sentiments lightly and fired back at Morgan, bringing the issue of trophies won into the equation.

Terry led a very illustrious career in West London which climaxed in Champions League triumph in 2012. His last Premier League title was in 2017.

Arsenal meanwhile, last won the EPL crown in 2004.
