"At this moment in time, it is United who are closest to Man City but I don't think Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal or Chelsea are right this season,"

"Man United are certainly the most capable, I think, to mount a challenge to Man City but it's about getting close enough to them. At the moment, Man City's performances are really good, it's a high level.

"But you have to retain hope if you're Man United and think that something could happen in a couple of weeks' time in that Manchester derby that could start a run of results that will put doubt in Man City's mind, that's the only way United can be thinking.

"They certainly have to beat Man City themselves. One thing you can't do it ask other teams to take points from them when you can't go and do it yourself so United have that chance in a few weeks."

"United should not be further away by the time that game comes around in two weeks,"

"They have to make sure they stay close enough to Man City because it won't be complacency that costs this Man City team, but it could be pressure as it builds through December, January, February if another team can get close to them."
