Scholes thinks Man City are not a threat thumbnail

Paul Scholes has said he will not consider Man City to be a major threat until the Premier League’s big spenders have won some silverware.

The Man Utd camp is in a bullish mood ahead of Saturday’s crucial derby, with neither players nor manager even considering a loss to their crosstown and now title rivals.

Sir Alex Ferguson feels United can all but sew up the Premier League title with victory in the early kick-off at Old Trafford while his players have spoken of their desire to secure bragging rights over an increasingly noisy neighbour.

United veteran Scholes knows how much the fixture means to fans as a standalone match but he said he does not yet quite see it as the kind of season-defining clash that occurs when United face Chelsea or Arsenal – although he conceded it is growing ever closer.

“They are definitely getting closer,” said Scholes. “Whether they are alongside Chelsea and Arsenal yet I am not sure. They would probably have to win something to become main rivals. But I am sure this year they will be fighting for it and the same will be true in years to come with more improvement.
