PIERS MORGAN cheekily asked Gunners boss Mikel Arteta if he was watching El Classico on Sunday night.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice in a 4-0 win at the Bernabeu, as Barcelona destroyed Real Madrid on their own turf.

The win moved the Catalans within 12 points of the league leaders and the former Gunners captain has helped turn their season around on it’s head.

Aubameyang now has nine goals for his new side, less than two months after Arteta booted him out of North London on a free transfer.

The 56-year-old Arsenal fan Morgan tweeted: “UPDATE: Aubameyang scores again in El Clasico.

“Two goals & one assist so far, and it’s still only the 53rd minute.

“You watching Mikel Arteta???”

It comes just days after Aubameyang told Morgan that “everyone is happy now” after his “separation” from the Gunners.

That’s after The SunSport columnist declared he “missed” watching the ex-Borussia Dortmund ace in action at the Emirates.

Fans were left stunned when Arteta agreed a deadline day move for the striker to join the Spanish giants on a freebie.

The former skipper had been frozen out after a ‘bust-up’ with staff, at least according to ex-teammate Gabriel.

That led to the Premier League side ripping up his £350,000-a-week contract, allowing his switch to the Nou Camp.

In his first El Classico on Sunday night, an emphatic win was book-ended by an Aubameyang brace.

A headed goal put the Catalans one goal up, and a cheeky chip finished the job.

Reflecting on his stunning performance in the Spanish capital, Auba said: “We’ll see where we can go from here after this big victory.

“I was very excited to come to Barcelona and do well.

“It’s very easy when you play with such good players.
