EPL: They play like champions – Rio Ferdinand proposes team to win title


Former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand has suggested Arsenal ‘played like champions’ during their thrilling Premier League 3-2 win against Manchester United on Sunday.

Arsenal beat Man United at the Emirates Stadium, thanks to goals from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka.

The Gunners, who still have a game in hand, are now five points ahead of number two Manchester City.

Speaking on his show FIVE, Ferdinand also said that Mikel Arteta’s side played with authority against Man United.

“You played like champions yesterday,” insisted Ferdinand, speaking to co-host Joel Beya, an Arsenal supporter.

“I was sitting there watching it with my two sons, and I turned to one and said, ‘Boy, these games already look like champions with the way they’re playing.’

He added: “The telling factor for me was when they went one down. There was no panic, it was so calm. It was like, ‘We know we’re going to have opportunities, we’re going to get back into it,’ and they did.

“They played with authority,” he said.
