Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Manchester City that his side will not crack as the season nears its climax.

Manchester United surged back to the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 win over West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday, while at the same time, City lost 1-0 at Swansea.

Is the first time since October that the Blues haven't been at the summit of the table, after picking up just seven points from their last seven away games.

And Ferguson believes that having contested many run-ins, his side know how to see out the season at the top of the table.

"We have that experience and it does help," said the United boss.

Temperament

"We won't get nervous.

"Against West Brom we kept playing our football even at 1-0 when the fans were thinking 'just get us a second.'

"It didn't concern the players one bit. It is good to see that kind of temperament."

Ferguson was also full of praise for Ashley Young, who is starting to show signs of his early season form after a two month lay-off with a knee injury.

"It takes time to get your rhythm back and Ashley showed that in his two performances against Ajax last month," Ferguson added.

"But he did well against Athletic Bilbao on Thursday and he was excellent again against West Brom."
