Piers Morgan reignited a social media war with former Liverpool striker Michael Owen following the Reds FA Cup semi-final exit against Aston Villa at Wembley on Sunday.

Morgan shared a tweet dated April 4, 2015 in which Owen claimed Raheem Sterling is better than Mesut Özil, that Liverpool will win the FA Cup and that Arsenal won’t make the Premier League Top 4.

Owen recently claimed that Sterling is a better player than Arsenal star Özil.

Speaking on BT Sport show Fletch & Sav, Owen said: “He’s better than Ozil. I think he’s better than Welbeck.”

Arsenal are currently second in the Premier League and have won 14 out of the 16 games Özil has featured in since returning from injury in 2015.

The Gunners also secured a place in the FA Cup final following their 2-1 win over Reading in the semi-final at Wembley.

Özil setup both goals and now has a total of five goals and nine assists for Arsenal this season.

The World Cup winner completed 114 passes, more than any other player on the pitch at a 90.4% accuracy according to the BBC.

The 26-year-old also starred in Arsenal winning the FA Cup last season, ending a nine year trophy drought.
