JAMIE VARDY and wife Rebekah brilliantly trolled Gunners-mad Piers Morgan following Leicester’s 3-0 win over Arsenal.
The Foxes frontman, 32, bagged twice late on at the King Power to seal the three points and knock another dent into Arsenal’s top-four ambitions.

On-loan sensation Youri Tielemans headed in Leicester’s opener against Unai Emery’s side, who were down to ten-men following Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ 36th-minute red card.
Vardy bagged his second with a tap-in with the game’s final touch, meaning Arsenal have conceded three in three consecutive top-flight games for the first time in 53 YEARS.
Piers took to Twitter during and after the game to vent his frustration at his beloved Arsenal’s incompetence.
He started: “Right, Arsenal, get a damn grip, stop playing like a bunch of spineless namby-pambies, earn your vast salaries & win this massively important game.”
But things took a turn for the worse when the Gunners were outplayed by Brendan Rodgers’ side.
He added: “I can’t devise any logical reason why we’d be outplayed in successive League games by Crystal Palace, Wolves & now Leicester.. other than our players, who are (mostly) technically better – and far more expensive! – footballers, lack the correct degree of heart & desire. We’ll be outplayed by Brighton next week.
“How have we gone from Dixon/Adams/Bould/Winterburn & Lauren/Toure/Campbell/Cole to this defensive debacle? It’s like going from Chateau Latour to Liebfraumilch.”
And come full-time his mood was beyond salvageable. Piers blasted: “I want our entire defence transfer-listed this evening. I will drive them to other clubs for interviews or medicals.
“Yes, I know it’s only April & the transfer window isn’t open yet. But we can’t take the risk that some of them may not be sold once it is.”
You ok, Tubs? Even with your mediocre maths, I reckon you can work out that Arsenal’s loss percentage in their last 3 games is 100.Gary Lineker to Piers Morgan
But the Vardys could not resist a chance to rub the mauling – which would have been far heavier were it not for Bernd Leno in goal – in the face of the irrate Morgan.
Rebekah started just ten minutes after full-time with: “You alright hun,” tagging Piers and putting in a laughing emoji.
Morgan fired straight back: “Don’t. Say. Another. Word.”
And Jamie followed up less than half an hour later.
He quipped: “Hi @piersmorgan” and added a tongue-out and a waving emoji.
And once again the Good Morning Britain host replied.
He wrote: “Well played Vardy, you *******.”
And an hour later he added: “ps If you keep chatting s***, you’re going to get banged,” referring to the phrase made famous by then-non-league footballer Vardy.
Leicester supporter and wind-up merchant Gary Lineker also got in on the act.
After a spat over Spurs’ record at their new stadium, Lineker tweeted around full-time yesterday: “You ok, Tubs? Even with your mediocre maths, I reckon you can work out that Arsenal’s loss percentage in their last 3 games is 100.”
Morgan – obviously not wanting to be outdone by his rival – responded: “I’m only comforted by the knowledge that Tottenham’s League-winning percentage in my 54-year lifetime is 0%.”
Fortunately for Morgan, he did at least have something to cheer about as Arsenal Women were crowned Women’s Super League champions yesterday.
He tweeted: “Congrats – great to see an Arsenal team winning big trophies & playing so brilliantly.”
