There was barely any passion on show from the Toffees as the Gunners, who had been struggling prior to their visit to Goodison, fashioned two good first-half goals to seal the encounter.
Ball pulled no punches on social media, summing up Everton's defeat as 'very very poor.'
Ex-goalkeeper Southall, meanwhile, was livid on social media and went on to comment on manager Roberto Martinez.
He feels the Everton boss will be given until the end of the season and discussed the Spaniard's inconsistent nature, highlighting the fact he could still bring the FA Cup trophy to Goodison Park this campaign.

Still could win us FA cup
There are an awful lot of similarities between Martinez's FA Cup-winning season with Wigan Athletic - when he took them down - and this one.
The only difference seems to be that Everton's squad is just too good to go down. Otherwise, you wouldn't have put it past Martinez to get relegated and win the cup once again...
