Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli does not fear city rivals United in the battle for the Premier League title.

The enigmatic 21-year-old - who also admitted a visit to a strip club last week was a "mistake" - is confident City will finish above Sir Alex Ferguson's team. The Blues are currently two points clear of the Red Devils.

"We are a great group," Balotelli told Gazzetta dello Sport. "We have quality. If we remain together until the end, United will finish behind us and they are not to be feared."
