Young: Man Utd can taste City's fear
Manchester United winger Ashley Young has told rivals Manchester City to expect a backlash when the sides meet at the Etihad Stadium on April 30.
United, who moved five points clear of Roberto Mancini's men following a 2-0 win at Blackburn on Monday, will be out to avenge the 6-1 humiliation they suffered at the hands of City earlier in the season at Old Trafford.
"I think City are fearing our reaction already," Young told the Match of the Day magazine. "A lot of people wrote us off earlier in the season with City being seven points clear. But we've just been going about our job quietly and now we've managed to claw it back."
The momentum in the title race has shifted heavily towards United in recent weeks, and Young suggests City's squad have failed to deal with the pressure associated with pushing for the Premier League crown, which is a new experience for many of their players.
"The pressure has always been on City - there aren't any nerves coming from our side," Young said. "We don't play with fear and we haven't got any nervousness going into games. We've got the momentum going into the final stretch of the season."
