The Gunners managed to get a late equaliser against Hull City in Saturday’s 2-2 draw, but the result leaves them 11 points behind leaders Chelsea after just eight games.
Parlour is one of many pundits who expect the Blues to battle Manchester City for the title this season, with the North London outfit once again competing for a place in next season’s Champions League.
“I think Arsenal are fighting for third or fourth place,” the former midfielder told talkSPORT.
“You look at Manchester City and Chelsea and they’re in a different league compared to Arsenal. They’re so far above Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs. I think all these teams are fighting for two places, they’re fighting for third and fourth.
“Chelsea grind out results. They’re so clinical in the way they get results and Manchester City stand a great chance, particularly if [Sergio] Aguero can keep playing like that. He was fantastic [against Tottenham], absolutely different class.
“Those two teams are far apart from Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs, so that’s what Arsenal are left fighting for.”
