The two Manchester clubs meet at the Etihad Stadium on Monday evening, with United currently three points clear. However, if Roberto Mancini’s men beat their bitter rivals they will reclaim top spot on goal difference.

Sir Alex told  “If City win they would probably go on to win it from there.

“Even though they’ve got to go to Newcastle I think they would have a great chance. If we won we’d be strong favourites. Even with a draw we’d be favourites. No doubt about that.

“Two games to go, one at home and one away, we’d have to be happy with that. One thing, though, we won’t be going to City just looking to make sure we don’t lose.”
