Manchester United legend Paul Ince feels Manchester City now have the upper hand in their rivalry. Ince claimed the balance of power has now shifted in favour of the blue half of Manchester.

"I hate to say it but Manchester City [are stronger] at the moment," he told talkSPORT. "At the start of the season, Man United were in scintillating form, really playing some good stuff. They seem to have lost their way a little bit but Man City seem to have stepped up a gear.

"I watched them play against Villarreal, which is never an easy place to go to, and they absolutely ripped hem apart. You compare that to Manchester United struggling [against Otelul Galati] and Manchester City have definitely got the upper hand at the moment."
