Rio Ferdinand

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has named the three most improved players under new permanent manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United has flourished both domestically and in Europe under Solskjaer and Ferdinand believes the Norwegian has had a positive effect on three players in particular.

"Since Ole has come, you would say [Marcus] Rashford, [Paul] Pogba and [Victor] Lindelof have been the most improved.

"Those three have been standouts for me. David de Gea is the best keeper in the league by a mile," Ferdinand told Goal.

Manchester United, who are now in fifth place following Arsenal's 2-1 win over Newcastle on Monday, take on Wolves on Tuesday night.
