Former Liverpool favourite was previewing the Gunners ahead of their match with Manchester City.
Graeme Souness has taken a strange dig at Arsenal by labelling them a team ‘full of son-in-laws’.

The Gunners have long been accused of having a soft centre and not having the required muscle to compete with the big teams and the former Liverpool defender used a bizarre analogy to show why he thinks they aren’t competing at the top of the Premier Leauge.
Previewing the game with Sky Sports new boy Thierry Henry, Souness said, according to Daily Star: “Thierry can’t say this but would you be disappointed with any of those players coming home with your daughter? They’re a team full of son-in-laws.”
The Scotsman’s comments certainly prompted some interesting reaction on Twitter:
Souness has been bang on about Arsenal for years ! Both bang on ! So why can’t WENGER get it !

That’s a genius summation of Arsenal from Souness: ‘a team of son-in-laws.’ That’s why I always stop & listen to what he has to say. — Mark Pougatch (@markpougatch) January 18, 2015
“There’s no rascals…they’re a team of son-in-laws.” Souness brilliant on Arsenal.

And the Gunners will no doubt need to be more robust at the back than they have been this season to have a chance at the Etihad later today.
City and Arsenal shared the spoils when the two side’s met at the Emirates in September but both will be looking for the three points to secure their season ending ambitions.
