Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has said that Arsenal look like a serious contender for this season’s title.
The Gunners beat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
Gabriel Magalhaes was just in time to convert Bukayo Saka’s corner kick in the second half of the match to secure three maximum points for the visiting team.
The victory saw Arsenal regain top spot from Manchester City, who beat Fulham 2-1 yesterday.
In his post-match analysis, the former Manchester United said he is seeing a new Arsenal.
“Is this team the real deal? There’s something there, togetherness, you can smell it on this team. The way they celebrate. There is an authority on how Arsenal are playing with this man, Mikel Arteta.
“How many times we looked at each other when a phase of the game was over and it was all because of the way Arsenal made their movements on the pitch. A true superior performance. These types of games are hard and they made it look as easy as you can make it.”
