Rio Ferdinand sends warning to Manchester United following defeat to Sheffield United

Former Manchester United man Rio Ferdinand has sent a message to the Red Devils ahead of the clash against Arsenal on Saturday. United suffered a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United on Wednesday. Sheffield celebrated their second win of the season as Kean Bryan and Oliver Burke scored for the Blades, meanwhile Harry Maguire scored for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side. With the defeat, United are currently 2nd with one point behind league leaders Manchester City, who have played one game less. “Man United have to answer the next day, if you’re gonna be a title-chasing team, these are the games where you’re gonna have to bring your A-Game every week," Ferdinand said after the game on BT Sport. "Bottom of the table, it doesn’t matter, last week, Liverpool - tremendous performance. Bottom of the league Sheffield United; dour, lifeless at times. "The inconsistency doesn’t win you the league and that’s what we’ve said about Man United for many months, that the inconsistencies from individuals in this team is what is holding them back. "We thought we’d seen the back of that and now it’s just rearing its head and that’s the unfortunate thing. But listen, it’s not the end of the world, they’re one point off Man City, yes, they have a game in-hand, but this is a reality check for these players." "Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, let’s start taking things a little bit more seriously again and re-focus, it’s not the end of the world by any means, it’s not panic stations, let’s go again," he added. “That comes with experience (leaders) and it could be a telling factor in the title run with someone like Man City that have got players that have won the league. "They’ve got Pogba and Cavani who have won the league in foreign countries, but the Man City, Liverpool, the Leicester team, have got players that have won here in the Premier League and experience does count for a lot.” source - football.london / Join us on Telegram
