Since Manchester City came in to money, they have failed to win a trophy and failed to get one over on Manchester United. The only game they have won is the first leg of the League Cup semi-final last season but United went on to win the second leg to knock them out, then went on to win the trophy ourselves.
Paul Scholes knows City will be pissed off that their money hasn’t been able to buy them success and questions their winning mentality.
“With them getting the money, it has probably helped us and spurred us on a bit more when we have played them,” said Scholes. “There has been nothing to choose between us in the last five or six games. They will obviously be pissed off that they have only managed to beat us once and that game was a Carling Cup semi-final first leg, with us having another game to make up for it. We have nicked the games with goals in the last minutes. I’ve done it, Michael Owen’s done it and Wayne Rooney did it last season. That’s maybe the difference between the two teams. We have a belief that we can beat anybody, but if City have that, I’m not too sure. But their spending is not our problem is it?”
