Sergio Aguero insists Manchester City will fight United to the bitter end to land the title.
Despite leading at one stage by seven points, City now find themselves three behind their arch rivals in the race to win the Barclays Premier League.
United have the experience on the home straight and many are now backing them to go on to secure a record 20th title.

But City won't give up easily – and Aguero, who is expected to return for Saturday's home match against Sunderland, says he doesn't want to wait for the title.
He said: 'Why wait until next season if we can win it now
'I can promise you that we’ll be fighting until the very end. We all want to make it and though it won’t be easy, we believe we can win the Premier League this season.
'Winning titles is about never giving up and we will never give up. I want to win it this season and then many more with City after that.'
Aguero, who missed the 1-1 draw with Stoke last weekend, is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up against the Black Cats.

City know a win will propel them level with United, piling the pressure on their rivals ahead of Monday night's tricky trip to relegation-threatened Blackburn.
Meanwhile, Aguero – who has bagged 24 goals in all competitions this season – has thanked City's fans for helping him settle quickly in England.
The 38million arrival from Atletico Madrid added: 'I was able to adapt quickly to the team and to the Premier League. That was all due to my team-mates, the club and especially the fans.
'We have had a great season but there is so much more to come from this team. I’ve been told we’ve broken historic records and that’s already an achievement. I’ve also learnt it’s important to respect our progress an on-going process.

'As for moving to England, my family and I feel we’ve adapted really well to living in Manchester and we haven’t been here for too long, either.
'The staff of the club and my team-mates have been very supportive, especially Pablo Zabaleta who has been here for quite a while.
'Everyone has made us feel like home. We still would like to know the city better and maybe visit the outskirts more, but we don’t have too much free
time in our hands.'
