Rio Ferdinand doubts any other team “goes through the gears as quick” as Man Utd after they beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on Thursday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw Marcus Rashford open the scoring in first-half stoppage time before Anthony Martial wrapped up the win with 12 minutes left in south London.

The Red Devils are now back level on points with Leicester and a point behind Chelsea before facing the Blues in an FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.

OPINION: Rashford is now Manchester United’s sharpest edge…

And Ferdinand was impressed with what he saw from “dangerous” Man Utd 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.”
