Premier League legend Graeme Souness has warned Arsenal that bigger tests await the Gunners, unlike last weekend’s poor Tottenham Hotspur.
Mikel Arteta’s side simply demolished Spurs inside the first 30 minutes with goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Bukayo Saka.
However, the popular Premier League pundit Souness has congratulated the Gunners with caution.
“Arsenal, enjoy your moment but you won’t play against such a poor team that Spurs were the first 45 minutes,” Souness told Sky Sports.
“They were so bad, they’re as bad as you’ll see this season. Enjoy your moment, but we’ll [Tottenham] be back.
“I'm looking at the crowd singing Aubameyang’s name, you go back last year and he was getting enormous abuse for the way he was playing and not scoring goals. Football is such a fickle game.
“That literally is one swallow, that’s not made your summer. I don’t believe Arsenal have gone from what we were seeing…They’ve now beat Norwich, Burnley and had a good 45 minutes against as poor a Tottenham team as I’ve seen in a long, long time.
“Enjoy your moment but that’s not going to make you a top four or Champions League team next year.
“You will not play such a poor team as Spurs were in that first half every week in the Premier League,” he concluded.
Up next for the Gunners is Graham Potter’s flying Brighton away at The Falmer Stadium this weekend.
