Smalling: We know how to beat City
- The 28-year-old insists Man United can end their title wait since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement
“We beat City at the Etihad so we know we can do it,” he said via Manchester Evening News. “When we played against the top teams, I thought we performed well whereas in other seasons we maybe let ourselves down against the top teams.
“They are the one team who finished above us. We need to make sure we don’t open up any gaps.
“It’s going to be a tough season and most of the tops teams have added players and they will be stronger than they were last season.”
