Rio Ferdinand has stated that Manchester United have overtaken Liverpool after the Red Devils finished above their arch-rivals in the Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer steered his side to second place this season as they won eight more points and finished one spot higher than the previous campaign.

While, Liverpool went into the season as defending champions but slumped to third and finished five points behind United.

And Ferdinand admits there is still much work to be done for his former side to close the gap on Manchester City at the table’s summit.

“I think in the league we’ve got what we wanted, which was an improvement,”  told Goal.

“I think Man United at the end of last season finished 30-odd points behind Liverpool. Liverpool are now behind us and they’ll have their excuses and reasons why but the cold facts are that we have gained that much ground on them that we’ve gone past them this season.

“That shows vast improvement and we’re second in the league. By no means are we the finished article but I think at the beginning of the season if you’d said you’d finish second in the league from where we were I think they’d have snapped your hand off.”
