Rio Ferdinand doubts that any other team “goes through the gears as quick” as Man Utd after they beat Crystal Palace 2-0.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time before Anthony Martial wrapped up the win with 12 minutes left.
The Red Devils are now back level on points with Leicester and a point behind Chelsea. They face the Blues in an FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.
And Ferdinand was impressed with what he saw from “dangerous” United side at Selhurst Park. As they maintained their 19-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
“Listen, Man United seem like a team that can score at any given moment,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
“Other teams will be watching that and think that if they lose the ball anywhere on the pitch, within seconds it’s in the back of the net.
“At the moment I’m thinking that this team, is there any other team that goes through the gears as quick as this team? They’re a dangerous team.
“They are actually putting the benchmark down to other teams now.”
We *think* @rioferdy5 might have enjoyed that one 😆
“That’s nice from Brunoooo!! GOAL! GOAL! GOOOAAALL!!!”

“I am trying to be clever inside the box and find half a yard to get a shot off,” Rashford told BT Sport.
“It’s the pattern of play that we do before that’s the positive. It’s what we’ve been improving on and it’s the reason we’ve been scoring so many goals in the last few games.” Read more…
