Two Arsenal youngsters will be blushing after this. Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has praised the Gunners’ performance against Manchester City last weekend

Ferdinand has lauded Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli after their explosive performances against the champions last weekend.

Despite losing 2-1, Arsenal impressed a handful of observers, including Ferdinand.

“I have to say, the first half from Arsenal was the best I’ve seen for years. If that’s a sign of things to come then you guys have some good stuff coming,” Ferdinand said via YouTube.

“Your two wide players Bukayo Saka and Martinelli, they just bullied and scared the life out of the City team, and you played with some authority,” Ferdinand added.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are now looking ahead to what will be a searing North London derby. Mikel Arteta’s side will travel to Tottenham Hotspurs next weekend for a Premier League battle.
