Manchester United go into today's Community Shield determined to beat Chelsea, says defender Rio Ferdinand.

He said: "You never go to Wembley to be a runner up, you go there to win the game. That will be the same this weekend.

"It is a great opener to the season and we are fortunate to be in this position. Other managers will be watching to see where we are fitness wise, tactics wise.

"It is for everyone to look at. We will be trying to put on as good a show as we can."
