Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is anxious to pounce whenever rivals Manchester United slip up.

The champions have fallen seven points behind their neighbours at the top of the Barclays Premier League but are confident of clawing back the deficit. City memorably recovered from eight points behind with just six games remaining last season and see no reason to panic with 17 left this time.

Mancini said: "Until now United played very, very well. They deserve to be on the top, maybe not seven points more than us but this is football. There are some moments during a season that even a top team like United can lose points. It is impossible to win every game like last year. We should be ready when United lose a point."
