City defender Micah Richards says it's too soon to write off their great rivals.
"United will come strong again.
"They are a massive club, they have been in these positions before and they know how to get out of them.
"Let’s not kid ourselves, Sir Alex Ferguson is probably the best manager ever. He’s probably like having a 12th man in your team.
"It will be hard for them, losing Fergie, but I think in time David Moyes will get it right because he is a fantastic manager."
