Souness slams Xhaka, says Arsenal need 'a couple of men'

Souness slams Xhaka, says Arsenal need 'a couple of men'”

Swiss global Xhaka incurred the wrath of pundit Graeme Souness on Sunday.

Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness pulled no punches with a classic rant about Arsenal's Granit Xhaka during the course of Manchester United's 2-1 Premier League win at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Marouane Fellaini headed home a 91st-minute victor for United, meaning Arsenal can not finish in the top four and will finish below north London rivals Tottenham for the second successive season.

It's ridiculous, if he doesn't do this [the attempted tackle] then he doesn't commit his centre halves. Get there, get up, commit a cute foul if crucial however do not promote your self as merely as that.

'That's for the TV cameras and people sitting in Row Z. It's kid football, it's more of the same from Arsenal. You said it's not the worst Arsenal performance this year; they've been like this for a decade.

Chile global Sanchez left the Gunners for the Red Devils in January and will on Sunday come up against his former employers for the first time since leaving as United look to strengthen their grip on second place in the top-flight standings. I would question no. Then if so why hasn't it been pointed out to him? "That cost them that goal". He goes to ground and this is: 'Look at me I'm working hard and trying to be... What he ought to do is come throughout, physique verify Pogba and threat taking a yellow card.

Sliding in was the wrong option, in his opinion: "This is what you do not do, it's nearly as though he thinks Pogba is lining up to shoot and he's going to get a block in".

"What is that? That is pretend football".

"Arsenal have turned up today, they've been neat and tidy".

Speaking during Sky Sports' coverage of the game about Xhaka's role in the opener, Henry said: "He does what he is supposed to do, he comes back. Nobody has pointed a finger at Xhaka to say: 'Stay on your feet you fool.' It's the basic things".

"I could have got away with that once in my Liverpool career, and I'd have been sat on the bench watching the rest of the game until I learned".

Although he recognised Arsenal played well in parts, Souness insists it is not enough.
