 I hope not. And I don't think they will, City have found how difficult it can be this year.

 I haven’t been scoring goals or been the main playmaker in the team for a while. I don’t think I actually need replacing in that way at all. I wasn’t the pulling the strings anymore, definitely in the last two years and probably even since I was 31-32. I haven’t been as prominent in the side. I wasn’t scoring the goals and I wasn’t making the goals.

 They are definitely getting closer, whether they are alongside Chelsea and Arsenal yet I am not sure. They would probably have to win something to become main rivals. But I am sure this year they will be fighting for it and the same will be true in years to come with more improvement. 
— Paul Scholes doesn't consider Manchester City as their rivals to win the Premier League / February 12, 2011
 It is more than local pride now, we are both going for trophies and we are both main rivals for trophies. Years ago, they were in the bottom half of the league, or not even in it, and we were always red-hot favourites. Even then it didn't necessarily mean we were going to win, as results proved. And they have better quality players now, which just makes matches against City even more interesting.

 You can't get away from the fact that both teams don't really like each other. We are both desperate to win and I don't think that will ever change.

 That was a bigger fixture because they were doing well. They came to Old Trafford and beat us. Liverpool did not have a great season last year but whenever you play them it is still a massive game.
