Manchester City are still the team to beat in the title race despite feeling the pressure from rivals Manchester United, according to goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Having seemingly swept all before them this season, City were pegged back at the top of the table on Boxing Day, with the red half of the city pulling level on points courtesy of a 5-0 win over Wigan. That came as City were drawing 0-0 at West Brom, with now only a superior goal difference keeping them on top of the pile.

And England stopper Hart has acknowledged the heat being generated by United, but insists he and his team-mates are up for the fight. He said: "Of course we feel the pressure. You have to earn the title and it's hard work. We're the team to beat and we're enjoying that but it's not always going to be as easy as we've sometimes made it look in the past."
