Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has scoffed at Manchester United's 15-point lead, claiming it is all down to luck! United went 15 points clear on Saturday with a 2-0 victory at bottom club QPR thanks to goals by Rafael and Ryan Giggs.

"Until now, United have been really lucky with everything," said Mancini.

"They have won a lot of games in the last minutes, including against us. They probably deserved to lose that game but won in the last second. I don't think this is a correct gap at the moment."
