Manchester United are like a “killing machine” but will not be allowed to stroll to the title from here, says Manchester City’s Joe Hart.

The Etihad Stadium number one admitted Roberto Mancini’s side had not been perfect this season but added that any shortcomings were amplified greatly by the ruthlessness of their rivals at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson has led his side to a 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League and they look all but certain to reclaim the title Manchester City snatched from their grasp at the death last season.

The England’ keeper believes drawing too many games has been City’s downfall as it saps vital momentum and he acknowledged United have been ruthless in exploiting any slip.

However, Hart isn’t about to conceded anything and insists the Citizens will keep going until the title is mathematically out of their reach.

“We’ve done well but we’ve been up against a killing machine that have kept turning out results no matter what," Hart said.

“Maybe we’ve drawn more than we would have liked to. It has not been a perfect season and it needs to be pretty perfect to win this league. It’s a tough league, it’s hard to win games.

“Unfortunately when we do lose, United stretch that lead and it has been disappointing but we’ll keep going.

“We worked so hard to get that title we are never going to just give it away. I’d imagine from the outside it looks that way but that’s just not the case.”

Hart is currently away on international duty with England as they face crucial World Cup qualifiers against minnows San Marino and close rivals Montenegro.

The San Marino game is on Friday at Wembley but the real test will be against Montenegro the following Tuesday in Podgorica.

Montenegro lead Group H by two points and a win for the Three Lions will be crucial if they are to book their automatic place at Brazil 2014.
