Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has spoken about how he feels United will regain the Premiership title from Manchester City next season.
Cleverley has said that he has been the subject of jeers from City fans on the street.
But the 22 year old says that the taunts just go to making the players even more determined that the EPL trophy will be back in its rightful place once again at the end of next season.
Speaking to the Daily Star, he said: “The motivation is there, massively.
“It’s our neighbours, our rivals. Nothing needs to be said to motivate ourselves.
“Football seems to be the only talking point in Manchester at the minute. When your neighbours are your main rivals for the league, you can’t really get away from it.
“We’ve taken some stick from the fans in the street. A few ‘Man City’ shouts, that sort of thing. You have just got to grit your teeth and keep your head down.
“It hurts, but it would be even sweeter to take it back next season. There’s been a bit of ribbing come our way, but to get our own back would be twice as nice.”
