Popular Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan has reacted to Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang’s decision to hand the late penalty-kick to Alexandre Lacazette against Stoke City.

The Gunners were booed off at half-time by another sparse and subdued home crowd after seeing Aaron Ramsey clip the crossbar with their only clear chance of the first 45 minutes.

Arsenal showed greater urgency after the break, although Stoke struck the woodwork through a Xherdan Shaqiri corner before the hosts were awarded a disputed penalty for a foul by Bruno Martins Indi on Mesut Ozil.

Aubameyang converted the spot-kick before firing home from an Ozil corner.

However, the Gabon striker decided to pass up the chance to claim a hat-trick when Arsenal were awarded another penalty late on.

Aubameyang opted to hand over the spot-kick to Alexandre Lacazette who was making his return from injury after spending several weeks on the sidelines.

And after watching that bit of generosity from Arsenal’s new striker, Piers Morgan reacted to Aubameyang’s decision on social media…

I’m torn about Aubameyang letting Lacazette take the 2nd penalty.
Part of me admires the selflessness, part of me wants a striker to be a selfish b*stard.
