Pellegrini: Man City players mentally stronger than Man Utd

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini insists his players are mentally stronger than their Manchester United rivals.

City's mentality was called into question last season as their failed title defence was them finish 11 points adrift of champions United.

"I don't know what happened in the past but I do know that our mentality at the moment is very strong," said the former Real Madrid and Malaga chief.

"So strong. More strong than Manchester United."
