Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini believes Manchester United have been simply lucky in this season.
Manchester United beat QPR 2-0 and are now 15 points above the City rivals . However City still have to play against Chelsea today and they can cut the points lead to 12.
Mancini said: “Until now United were lucky with everything. They won a lot of games in the last minutes, including against us. They probably deserved to lose that game but won in the last second. I don’t think this is a correct gap at the moment.’
But Mancini added: “If United go forward in the Champions League the last two months will be hard for them.
“They could lose five points in two games before the derby.”
The two sides meet again in the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford on April 8.
