United legend issues warning

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has warned his former club not to dismiss the threat of Manchester City's big-game players when the two teams clash tonight.

The Red Devils can stretch their 15-point lead over their neighbours at the top of the Premier League table with a victory at Old Trafford.

City are expected to be at full strength with Sergio Aguero and skipper Vincent Kompany recently returning from long lay-offs.

But it is the drive and mentality of Blues midfielder Yaya Toure, coupled with the goal threat of striker Carlos Tevez, which Sir Alex Ferguson's team will have to be most wary of.

That's the verdict of former United midfield hero Robson, who now works at the club in an ambassadorial role.

Robson insists: "Carlos Tevez and Yaya Toure are the two players who can do something out of the ordinary.

"You need players like them if you are going to win things. They've got great quality - power, balance and the ability to score goals out of nothing.

"That's what makes them outstanding players compared to those who are very good. They do magical things."

City can be backed at 21/10 to take all three points, 23/10 to draw and 6/4 to lose to their old rivals United.
