Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes one of Manchester City’s superpowers is the team’s ability to handle the big occasion better than anyone else.

Ferdinand told BT Sport: “We looked at this as a title decider and the experience told today. City knew what was needed. The way they asserted themselves, won their battles and overran this Arsenal team, they showed their level.

“They can handle the big occasion better than anyone else – it is one of their superpowers. But they can play ugly at times, how they press, how aggressive they are and if they are pressed how they can go longer.”
