Graeme Souness tells Arsenal and Man City to forget about winning the title
The former Liverpool captain explains why he doesn't think Arsenal or Manchester City will win the title
Graeme Souness has claimed that Arsenal and Manchester City don’t have the necessary physicality to win the Premier League title this season.
The Gunners haven’t won the top-flight crown since 2003-04 when Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira inspired the north London side to glory.
Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last term but 10 points behind eventual champions Leicester City.
Arsene Wenger signed five players in the summer transfer window as the Arsenal manager bolstered his squad.
Manchester City, meanwhile, appointed former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola as Manuel Pellegrini’s replacement.
The Citizens finished in fourth place last term and were the early favourites to win the Premier League crown.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, former Liverpool captain Souness explained why neither side will win the Premier League.
“You have to have a bit of everything to win this league,” Souness said.
“Both these teams have shown us they’re great footballing teams, but when they get put under pressure physically, they’re not at their best. They’re vulnerable…
“Going down this road, unless these two teams change, I don’t see either of these teams winning the league.”
Chelsea have won their last 11 Premier League games following their 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
