Arsenal legend Ray Parlour insists there's no reason to panic after recent results.

Parlour is convinced that this year can still be productive, despite last week’s Anfield meltdown.

Parlour said: “The first thing you have to consider is that the Premier League is a lot more competitive now than it was when I played for ­Arsenal.

“When we won Doubles, it was ­really only Arsenal and Manchester United competing. You did not have Manchester City with the firepower they have got now and while Chelsea were coming up a little bit on the rails, you did not have Liverpool, ­Everton and Spurs improving the way they currently are.

“So Arsene Wenger would look at this season in that context and say, definitely, this would be his finest ­moment at Arsenal if he won this year’s Premier League title.

“He had that unbeaten season in 2003-04 but if you look at how the ­Premier League has changed, this win would probably be up there as number one or two in his list of achievements.”
