Graeme Souness delivers blunt verdict on Arsenal after Man United draw

Graeme Souness has not been particularly impressed by what he has seen from Arsenal so far this season

Graeme Souness has said that he is yet to be impressed by Arsenal this season and does not feel that the Gunners have the required steel to win the Premier League title.

The north London side earned praise on Saturday as they came from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw against Manchester United thanks to Olivier Giroud’s late goal at Old Trafford.

It ended up looking like a good point for Arsene Wenger’s men, who were second-best to United for much of the game and did not create many chances.

However, the result still dented Arsenal’s title hopes in the Premier League.

And former Liverpool man Souness is yet to be convinced by the Gunners this season.

Speaking on Sky Sports after Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with United, Souness said: “I’m not sure [Arsenal have changed].

“I turned up here thinking they’d win today.

“Am I any more convinced that this is a different Arsenal that can go on and win the league than this time last year? No, I’m not. The shortcomings are still there.”

Arsenal finished second in the Premier League last season.
