Manchester United will get jittery as the Premier League title race reaches its conclusion, according to Manchester City assistant manager Brian Kidd.

The Citizens managed to cut the Red Devils’s lead at the top of the table to 13 points after City were 1-0 winners against Wigan Athletic and United were held to a 2-2 draw at West Ham on Wednesday night.

Roberto Mancini’s men can further reduce the gap to 10 points if they beat Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday before the Red Devils take on struggling Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men squandered an eight-point lead last season as City won their first top-flight crown since 1968 in dramatic circumstances on the final day of the campaign.

And Kidd, who is Ferguson’s former United assistant, reckons the 19-time English champions could still choke after the last year’s experience.

“There will be some jittery moments and what happened last year it was a bad experience for them,” said Kidd.

“They will have been shocked by it. It’s not over until it’s mathematically finished with.”

He added: “Stranger things have happened in football. It is poor if we think it was all over. It could turn out a great season for Manchester City, we could win the league and the FA Cup. What a great season.”
