Fletcher backs United to press City

Brought to you by William Hill


Darren Fletcher is certain Manchester United are capable of exerting pressure on Premier League title rivals Manchester City.

Both clubs head into the weekend on the back of disappointing results in Europe but whilst United still have their destiny in their own hands, even if a scrap for second spot with FC Basle was not what they had in mind for the final day when the Champions League group stage began, City are staring at an early exit following their defeat to Napoli.

But Fletcher recognises only more victories will start to make their neighbours sweat and he said: "The only results we can control are our own. But we know if we play to the level we are capable of then we can win matches and put Manchester City under pressure."
