Bring on City

ALEX Ferguson is already licking his lips at the prospect of a decisive collision in Manchester with the Premier League title at stake.

"It's still early doors. I always say that March is a very important month, as well as the beginning of April. We play Manchester City in April, for instance," he said with a wide grin just after beating Stoke 2-0.

Ferguson and his players heaped pressure on Roberto Mancini (pictured right), who showed distinct signs that he is creaking under the weight of Manchester City's disastrous opening to the New Year after losing to Everton via a Darron Gibson thunderbolt.

"I didn't prepare well for this game. I thought it was maybe easier. I know here it is never easy, never," said Mancini.

"I acknowledge my mistake. It is important for me to know this because, like this, I can't do the same mistakes in the next game."
