Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Manchester United continue to stay one step ahead in the Barclays Premier League title race because they have men who can deliver when the season's decisive moments enter "money time".

United moved five points clear of rivals Manchester City with victory at Blackburn on Monday night secured by a late double salvo from Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young.

"Manchester United are surprisingly in a comfortable position, no one expected them to be because they did not look absolutely irresistible this year," Wenger said. "You could see that again on Monday night against Blackburn, but they managed to win the game. If Manchester United make it to the title, it is really down to experience."
