Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham appears to have dismissed Manchester City's chances of winning a maiden Barclays Premier League crown this season.

City currently sit top of the league after a haul of 35 points from their opening 13 fixtures, with the latest coming after a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.

Roberto Mancini's also have a five point cushion on their city rivals, and destroyed United 6-1 at Old Trafford earlier this season.

City can also boast an unbeaten start to the domestic campaign, having won 11 and drawn twice, while scoring 43 goals in the process.

Beckham, however, seems unconvinced by the credentials of the Blues, and expects United's experience to see them to a 20th league crown come May.

"I don't think Manchester City have a chance," the LA Galaxy star is reported to have said, according to MEN.

"This season they have got a good team and have some good players, but Manchester United have more experience and know how to win a championship."

Beckham, meanwhile, has yet to confirm where his future lies following the expiration of his contract with the Galaxy.

Reports last week claimed the 36-year-old had agreed to a big-money deal with nouveau-riche Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain.
