We are better than Man Utd - Mancini
- From the section Football
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini believes his team "are better than Manchester United", despite City losing to their neighbours in the derby last week.
Robin van Persie's injury-time winner gave the Reds a 3-2 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday to move six points clear at the top of the Premier League.
Mancini says it is "not a big problem to recover" the deficit, but feels City "need to be strong" if they are to retain their title.
