Ex-Man City boss Reid tips Man Utd to succeed in title pursuit
Sir Alex Ferguson's United sit 12 points clear of Roberto Mancini's City and former manager Reid is of the belief that the red side of Manchester are in pole position with their ability to grind out the required results.
"Champions win football matches when they are not playing well," he said.
"That is why they are 12 points clear and that is the reason I think they will win it."
"They haven't scored enough goals - they scored a lot last season - and that all comes into the equation."
