Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has slammed Arsenal for celebrating beating a Chelsea B team at Stamford Bridge.

Ferdinand said: “You lot were very impressive, I can’t take that away from [Arsenal].

“You lot are serious. A serious team now. But look at the opposition you were playing, it wasn’t even their first team!

“Still impressed, but it was not their first team. Kepa [Arrizabalaga] is the No.1 goalkeeper now.

“[Reece] James, [Ben] Chilwell, [Kalidou] Koulibaly, [Wesley] Fofana, [N’Golo] Kante, that’s six players who all [usually] start.

“It was their second team, their B team. Six starters didn’t start!”
