Rio Ferdinand believes a gulf in class is starting to open up between Liverpool and Manchester City, and the rest of the chasing pack.

A host of midweek matches saw City and Liverpool triumph once again over Watford and Burnley respectively, while Manchester United and Arsenal drew and Chelsea lost to Wolves.

The results leave a six-point gap between the top two sides and third-placed Tottenham, who leapfrogged Chelsea with a win over Southampton.

And Ferdinand, who played for Manchester United for twelve years, admitted that City and Liverpool are head and shoulders above their rivals this season.

“There is a big difference in class but we knew that coming into this game,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“Liverpool and Man City are a cut above the rest in this league.

“Everyone else is in the chasing pack. Man United are eighth and, looking at the league table, isn’t a pretty sight at all as a Man United fan and the supporters won’t be happy with that.”
