Manchester City will continue to bide their time as they look to defend their Premier League title.

City remained seven points behind league leaders Manchester United courtesy of a 2-0 victory at Arsenal – their first of this kind since 1975 – and manager Roberto Mancini is keeping calm about their premiership pursuit despite United winning nine of their last ten outings.

"At this moment, United play very well, but the season is long. It is important for us to be there, close with them, and we will arrive the moment they lose points," he said.

"We have the derby on April 6 and we need to arrive there with five or four points behind, it is okay."
