Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Manchester United's fans they will have to get used to scrapping for honours with their "noisy neighbours".

Ferguson famously used that description to assess Manchester City two years ago, at the start of their £1billion quest to reach the top. The summit is now in reach, given City are three points clear of United in the Barclays Premier League and are favourites to advance from an eagerly-anticipated FA Cup third round tie at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

"The way we, and our supporters, should look at it is that we may as well get used to it because they are not going to go away," the United boss told Inside United.
