Rio Ferdinand has released a Facebook post admitting that he was left in shock after watching Arsenal cruise to victory against Manchester United yesterday.
The Gunners swept aside the Red Devils in the opening 20 minutes in north London as they found the back of the net on three occasions.
Ultimately, Louis van Gaal's side had no answer and were dealt their second Premier League defeat of the season in the 3-0 loss.

Ferdinand, of course, enjoyed a wonderful career for the Old Trafford outfit and has insisted that Arsenal played like his United team of the past throughout proceedings.
A short snippet of Ferdinand's post reads: "So roll forward to the game on Sunday at the Emirates, which I took my kids to (kitted out in their Manchester United kits) & I saw a complete turnaround...I was seeing arsenal do to us (especially the win it back & break quickly & direct tactic) what my @manutd team had done to arsenal many times.

"Mesut Özil goal was a perfect example of that too....me and my kids were in a state of shock like every fan at the Emirates on Sunday - both sets of fans different reasons for shock obviously!"
Up for the fight
There's no doubt about it, yesterday's victory over United will increase momentum for Arsenal as they go in search of securing the Premier League title. The likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey all have the quality to help Arsene Wenger's side reach the summit of England's elite division.
With pace, power and class, the Gunners finally look in good enough shape to challenge the big boys.
Manchester United, on the other hand, must back bounce immediately. Van Gaal's side have been written off before, so they must move on from this result immediately.
With the duo of Everton and Manchester City on the horizon, the club's key players must rediscover their best form. United have it all to do to challenge for the title, but it would be foolish to completely disregard their credentials at this stage.
