Rio Ferdinand reacts to Arsenal’s display at Man United on Twitter

Rio Ferdinand is not holding back...

Rio Ferdinand has taken to social media to blast Arsenal’s lack of leadership after their 3-2 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The north London side were dealt a significant blow to their Premier League title hopes as they were beaten by an under-strength United team at Old Trafford.

The defeat left Arsenal third in the top-flight table, five points behind Leicester and three behind Tottenham heading into the final 11 games of the season.

And former United defender Ferdinand was clearly unimpressed by what he saw from the Gunners at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Ferdinand tweeted:

Marcus Rashford fired United into the lead in the 29th minute – and the teenager made it 2-0 moments later when he blasted home from close range on his Premier League debut.

Arsenal pulled a goal back when Danny Welbeck headed Mesut Ozil’s free-kick into the near post before half-time.

However, Ander Herrera’s deflected shot restored Manchester United’s two-goal lead in the 65th minute.

Ozil pulled a goal back for the Gunners in the 69th minute but they were unable to conjure an equaliser.
