Manchester City better than Manchester United, says Roberto Mancini

Even though Mancini is struggling with a host of injury problems, he feels his team have to show their credentials over the weeks ahead. He added: "For this reason we have 23 or 24 games until the end and I don't think it's a big problem to recover six points.
