Vieira: Man City closing gap on Man Utd

Manchester City signing Patrick Vieira insists the club is capable of overtaking Manchester United as the city's biggest.

City are pushing for a top four place after losing to Manchester United in the semi-finals of the Carling Cup.

Roberto Mancini's side also have an FA Cup tie against Stoke to look forward to on February 13.

Vieira said: "I have found a team that matches my expectations. I think the future for this club is fantastic. There are a lot of winners and great players in the dressing room.

"Hopefully we can achieve what we want and finish in the top four. We are getting closer to Manchester United. The gap is definitely narrowing."
