Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed Manchester City "might have fallen apart" this season had it not been for the fact they had the Barclays Premier League title in sight.

Both Manchester clubs head into the final game knowing they could end up as champions. However, City have the clear edge thanks to their goal difference advantage, which means if they beat QPR at the Etihad Stadium it would secure them their first title since 1968.

It represents a major achievement for manager Roberto Mancini, who has had to deal with numerous issues, including Carlos Tevez's lengthy absence from the club and Mario Balotelli's erratic behaviour. Ferguson said: "It is obvious all the things he has had to deal with. If he didn't have the closeness to win the league, it might have fallen apart."
