Ex-City manager Reid tips United

Former Manchester City boss Peter Reid says he has changed his opinion since Christmas and now believes Manchester United and not City will win the Premier League title this season.

Reid, the last City manager to take them to a higher league finish than their Manchester rivals, believes United have dealt better with setbacks this season, particularly when key players have been missing from the first team.

Reid also says City have not lasted the pace of a Premier League season and handled pressure as well as United.

The Red Devils are now five points clear at the top of the league with seven games remaining, having beaten Blackburn 2-0 at Ewood Park on Monday.
