Mancini still fearful of United

Roberto Mancini said Manchester United were still the team to beat after watching his Manchester City side dish out a 6-1 spanking at Old Trafford.

The Premier League's big-spenders moved five points clear the top of the Premier League table after a breathless display of attacking football resulted in United's worst home defeat since February 1955 – and first at Old Trafford in any competition since April 2010.

Mario Balotelli scored either side of a red card shown to Jonny Evans before substitute Edin Dzeko scored twice and David Silva and Sergio Aguero also netted, with Darren Fletcher grabbing a consolation for the home side. Those who bet on football ( will have been astonished.

City have now taken 25 out of 27 points but Mancini said he would not be celebrating just yet.

He said: "This is only one game. I still think United are one yard above us, still.

"I think we can only change this after we win the title in the end.

"After, maybe it will be different, but now United are better than us."

Next up for City is a Carling Cup and Premier League double against strugglers Wolves before a return Champions League fixture against Villarreal and Mancini warned there was more to come from his players. The Premier League betting ( reflects this.

The Italian added: "This is important for our supporters and maybe for the goals in the table. I am happy with the three points.

"But I think we need to improve more if we want to stay on the top a long time. We need to work more."
