The Red Devils lost 2-1 to the Premier League leaders at Old Trafford last weekend to leave Jose Mourinho’s men 11 points adrift of their bitter city rivals after 16 games.
Manchester City won their 15th successive Premier League game thanks to a resounding 4-0 win over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Citizens have beaten Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United in the 2017-18 Premier League season so far.
Defending champions Chelsea lost 1-0 to Manchester City at Stamford Bridge following Kevin De Bruyne’s second-half winner against his former club.
Goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi either side of half-time helped Manchester City to secure a 2-1 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Former Manchester United defender Neville admits he doesn’t envisage Chelsea or Manchester United overhauling Pep Guardiola’s side in the title race.
“You don’t know where they are going to slip up,” Neville told The Debate on Sky Sports on Thursday night.
“The worry for Chelsea and Man United is where do they slip up? Man United picked an attacking team and where outplayed on the day.”
Manchester City have won the Premier League title in 2012 and 2014 but are waiting to win their first top-flight crown under Guardiola.
The Citizens finished in third place in the table last term behind champions Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
Guardiola’s side will host Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.
