David Moyes admits that Manchester United will have to be at their best to keep Manchester City at bay at Old Trafford next week.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men boosted their hopes of winning the Premier League title on Saturday with a commanding 5-0 victory over Fulham at Eithad Stadium.

We have to have a balance of attacking and defending. We will try to get that right

David Moyes

City can move back to the top of the Premier League table if they win their two games in hand over current leaders Chelsea.

And Moyes, whose side are seventh in the table heading into Tuesday’s derby clash, has acknowledged that the Red Devils will face a tough task in keeping City’s attacking threat quiet.

“Their ability to score goals would be in anybody’s mind because if you look at the record this year they have been terrific,” said Moyes.

“City and Liverpool have been really good going forward throughout the year, that’s why they have found themselves at the top of the league.

“So we have to be mindful of that, we have to have a balance of attacking and defending. We will try to get that right.”

Moyes added: “City are going for the title and we have got to keep picking up points to try to get towards the top end of the league.”
