Smalling: United have title edge on City

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling believes momentum is on the Red Devils' side as they look to pull three points clear of title rivals Manchester City by beating his former club Fulham on Monday.

City's draw with Stoke on Saturday gives Sir Alex Ferguson's side the opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the table and Smalling reckons it is both current form, and a squad containing experienced heads, that is driving United's title charge.

"We may have an edge over City at the minute,'' Smalling said. "Experience is one thing, momentum is another. We are really building that at the minute. Those are the two things that can really help us push on.

"That it's City just spurs us on even more. They're making a lot of noise over there and we don't them to win it. You see the table a lot and people are talking about all the fixtures coming up so it is always very much on our minds.

"And the fact we are training four or five days a week for each game builds them up even more in the sense of just how important they are.''
