Manchester City defender Gael Clichy has said that there is a chance that arch-rivals Manchester United may lose their nerves and blow up their chances of getting the Premier League title again,despite being 12 points ahead in the race.

United had the finishing line in their sights last season but blew an eight-point lead with six games left to hand the title to Manchester City,the Daily Star reports.

The French footballer said that United players may again lose their nerves with doubts in their minds,adding that the current scenario is not much different from the last season.

Stating that United was eight points behind with six games to go last year as compared to 12 points behind with 10 more games to play this time,Clichy said that City still has a chance of winning the title if United draws in a few matches.

Clichy further said that if that happens,then it is possible for doubts to cloud the United players’ nerves and may get them left behind in the race for the title.
