Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has claimed that Manchester City is capable of terrifying any team in the English Premier League except their cross-road rivals Manchester United.

Bent will lead Aston Villa's strike force when they face Roberto Mancini's men in their Premier League clash on Sunday.

"Everyone was saying that Man City were going to run away with it but Man United have shown their never-say-die attitude and have pegged it back again," The Daily Star quoted Bent, as saying.

He believes that the Premier League title is Manchester-bound this season and any of the Manchester teams could win it.

"It's definitely between Man City and Man United. I'd definitely say it's going to be between one of those two," he said at an EA Sports FIFA Street event.

Bent praised the formidable range of talented players the City team has in its squad.

"It's just frightening; some of the players City have in their team. David Silva has been the league's best player bar Robin van Persie. He just seems to find passes."

"You've then got Aguero, Dzeko, Balotelli, the list is endless. They can sjust score goals from anywhere to be fair. It's going to be difficult but we'll have a plan," he said.
