Manchester United icon, Rio Ferdinand has insisted that Arsenal wouldn’t merit to be Premier League champions if they lose to the Red Devils.

Arsenal will face Man United in an away Premier League tie at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Gunners head to the game after beating Bournemouth 3-0 in their last game, while Erik ten Hag’s side were defeated 4-0 against Crystal Palace.

Amidst Man United’s turmoil, Ferdinand argued that Arsenal’s title aspirations would be undeserved if they stumbled against Erik ten Hag’s side.

Expressing his views on his FIVE Podcast, the retired English defender said:

“If Arsenal were to lose against Man United in this fixture, they wouldn’t merit the championship title. Facing a depleted and demoralized opponent with little stake in the league, such encounters define a title run-in.”

Arsenal and Man City are currently the two top teams fighting to win the Premier League title this season.
