Ray Parlour was understandably gutted after Arsenal's 4-0 loss at Southampton on Boxing Day.
Leicester City's 1-0 loss at Liverpool opened the door for Arsene Wenger's men but, in typical Arsenal fashion, they slipped up - and how.
As such, Parlour expressed his disappointment on Twitter but also suggested two Southampton players the north London side should try and sign.

Like most Arsenal fans, meanwhile, Parlour expressed his frustration in simpler terms on social media!
Poor performance tonight Had a good Christmas up till now— Ray Parlour (@RealRomfordPele) December 26, 2015
Arsenal's problems would certainly be helped with the signing of a strong defensive midfielder. But it seems the main reason they won't is the main reason they always lose when they can lay down a real marker: Wenger.
The Gunners boss's mentality hasn't been a title winning one for some time. If Arsenal need a player that could guarantee them the league, it's almost as though Wenger would deliberately avoid buying him...
