Former Liverpool player and manager Graeme Souness went harsh on Arsenal after the Gunners suffered a 3-2 lost against a much weaker Manchester United side. ‘Arsenal is a Joke’ claimed the former Red’s manager who won five First Divison Championship with Liverpool between 1978-84.

Manchester United without 13 players due to injuries and they played no of youth team players against a fully fit Arsenal team. Yet, the Red Devils won the game brilliantly and have dominated the game for the most part.

“I want to be harsh on Arsenal. It was more of a tippy-tippy football by Arsenal, going nowhere, that’s why they have 60 per cent possession. Arsenal today – bordered on being a joke.”
“They turned up here against a Manchester United team that’s struggling because of injuries, introducing young players, confidence is low among some of the players,” he told Sky Sports.

Not only the former Liverpool man, lots of other pundits and former players were criticising the Gunner for their naive show. Souness further continued that Arsenal’s position will further derail when they visit Barcelona for the Champions League round of 16 second leg. He felt Arsenal will be out of the UCL and they will not win the English Premier League either since they have to face a strong Tottenham side at the White Hart lane.
“It’s tailor-made for a proper team to come here and do a number on a very under-strength Manchester United, and they didn’t.”
“They have to go to Tottenham, they have to go to Barcelona. By March 16, they could be out of all competitions. This is an Arsenal team that you were saying month ago were a real team.”
“Arsene Wenger must be tearing his hair out. There’s a word I want to use, but I can’t, which describes a lack of something real players have,” Souness told.
Arsene Wenger’s men are 5 points behind league leaders Leicester City and there are 11 more games left to play, so it’s not an impossible task but the Gunners have really complicated their chances with this defeat.
