Ashley Young was thrilled to see Manchester United reclaim the Premier League top spot on Sunday, insisting the pressure was always on neighbours Manchester City.
Sir Alex Ferguson's men saw off West Brom 2-0 at Old Trafford to leapfrog City, who suffered a surprise defeat at Swansea.
The Red Devils had previously sat two points adrift of their local rivals but winger Young insists it is Roberto Mancini's side who are feeling the heat.
"The pressure has always been on them," Young told Sky Sports.
"We've just gone about our job and that's exactly what we're going to do and we look forward to each game. That's the next thing we'll look forward to, the next game that comes up.
"Obviously we're delighted to get the three points and be back at the top of the league."
Young, a star performer against the Baggies who earned United a penalty, was pleased with their display but felt they could have made more of their chances.
"We're delighted with today, how it's gone, but I think we could have gone on and scored more goals," he said.
"I think we could have added a few more to the two that we got. But we're delighted to get the three points, which is the main thing.
"We'll just keep looking forward to the next game now."
Young is relieved to have rediscovered his form from earlier in the season after spending time on the sidelines with injury.
He added: "I'm delighted how things are going. I think I've found my feet again with my early season form."
