Chris Smalling believes the momentum is with Manchester United as the Red Devils look to take a firm grip on the Barclays Premier League title battle by beating Fulham on Monday night.

While a draw at Stoke in itself is not a bad result, Manchester City's failure to win at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday has left the door open for United to open up a three-point lead on the team who pose the only realistic barrier to a record 20th league championship.

"We may have an edge over City at the minute," said Smalling. "Experience is one thing, momentum is another. We are really building that at the minute. Those are the two things that can really help us push on."
