Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov has said that he feels that his club is certainly the best team in the division, and they should be top of the table right now. City will be going into the Manchester Derby on Monday night trailing Manchester United by a massive 15 points.

The title will almost be over if City failed to win this match. It was only 12 months ago that City were crowned as the champions of England, but they are about to lose their crown to their arch rivals. Despite this, Kolarov reckons that City not only have the best squad in the division, but they have also been playing the best football as well.

However, the Serbian defender has said that City have made several mistakes over the course of the campaign, while their rivals have not. This has proven to be the difference between the two teams. United have lost just three matches all season, will remain on course to catching Chelsea's record of 95 points in a single season. Even though City 15 points behind United, Kolarov has said that the team still has the same motivation to get one over their arch rivals.

United have 77 points on the board now with eight matches remaining in the campaign. "I have to be honest, they have been better this season. We have played good, but some games we have made mistakes. Against small teams, we have made a lot of mistakes - away especially. They deserve it because they are in first place at the moment. But, for us, that doesn't change anything. We are going to try and win in the game at Old Trafford, to be proud. I think we are better than them," said Kolarov ahead of the match.

United were recently knocked out of the FA Cup by Chelsea.
