Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta believes a string of victories will heap the pressure onto league leaders and bitter rivals Manchester United in the race for the Barclays Premier League title.

Both sides won difficult fixtures at the weekend with United beating Liverpool 2-1 and reigning champions City easing past Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Those results mean Sir Alex Ferguson's side still hold a seven-point lead at the top of the table but Zabaleta reckons a decent run of form could see City close up and overtake United, like they did in dramatic fashion last season. "We know that we are up against a rival in United who are in a very good moment," he said.
