Rio Ferdinand issues title warning to Liverpool after Manchester City win

Rio Ferdinand has issued a warning to title hopefuls Liverpool after Manchester City came from behind to beat Newcastle United on Saturday evening.

City took the lead through Bernardo Silva but conceded two in three minutes to turn the game on its head.

The turning point of the game occurred when Kevin De Bruyne, who has been out with injury all season, was introduced to the field.

Scoring a superb drilled effort five minutes after coming off the bench, he would go on to delightfully set up Oscar Bobb for a stoppage time winner, playing the Norwegian wonderkid in with a perfectly-weighted lofted through ball.

It was a cameo that would have certainly unsettled Liverpool fans, with City now just two points behind the current league leaders.

And Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Reds supporters have the right to be worried, believing that City are about to truly kick into gear.

Appearing as a pundit on TNT Sports, he said: "Pep Guardiola, very rarely do you see him as animated as he was today.
