Rio Ferdinand says what hurts most about Manchester United’s defeat at Britannia Stadium is the result didn’t come as a surprise to Red Devils legend.

The 20-time English champions succumbed to a third successive Premier League loss following a resounding 2-0 defeat by Stoke City at Britannia Stadium on Boxing Day.

Bojan capitalised on a defensive mix-up between Memphis Depay and David De Gea to edge Mark Hughes’s side into an early lead before Marko Arnautovic’s stunning strike doubled Stoke’s lead on 26 minutes.

Louis van Gaal is facing increased speculation surrounding his position at Old Trafford amid reports Jose Mourinho could take over the reins from the 64-year-old Dutch coach.

Former United defender Ferdinand appears to have lost faith in Van Gaal’s current players after the centre-half tweeted his thoughts on the Red Devils’s performance at The Britannia.

United are nine points behind leaders Leicester City after their fifth defeat of the season.
