Former Manchester United star David Beckham has played down Manchester City's hopes of winning the Premier League title this season.
Big-spending City are unbeaten so far and currently sit five points clear of the defending champions after only 13 games, having hammered them 6-1 at Old Trafford last month.
However Beckham, 36, thinks that experience will ultimately decide where the trophy finishes up at the end of the campaign.
"I don't think Manchester City have a chance,'' he told reporters. ''This season they have got a good team and have some good players, but Manchester United have more experience and know how to win a championship."
Beckham's MLS winning LA Galaxy team are in Jakarta to play a local side as part of their Asian tour, but the midfielder was coy about his own future when pressed on claims he could join either AC Milan or Paris Saint-Germain once his contract expires in January, saying only: "I have a big decision to make."
