Man Utd legend Robson: Veterans gives us edge on Man City

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson believes Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs gives them the edge on Manchester City.

Robson says United's know-how will ultimately see them kill off Roberto Mancini's hopes of making City champions for the first time since 1968.

"When I look at our boys and the City boys, when it comes to handling the pressure I know for a fact we will just keep playing the same way we've been playing all season," Robson told the Manchester Evening News. "They will not get nervous about it because they've been there and done it all before.

"Some of the City players, you don't know how they are going to handle it. Are they going to get nervous if they are not playing quite so well? We don't know because they have not been in this situation.

"With players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and now Rio Ferdinand, you just have to watch the way they play when the pressure is on them.

"A lot of players cannot do that because they try too hard, go down a different path and it might not work."
