Eric Cantona has insisted Manchester United's experience will be enough to see them win the Premier League.

The Frenchman, promoting his new film Switch, rarely spoke about football to Sky News' Adam Boulton, but was unequivocal in tipping his old club to see off Manchester City.

"United are used to pressure, they will win the Premiership," he told Boulton.

Cantona's new film:

Cantona scored eight goals in seven games against City during his four-and-a-half-years at United.

Signed from Leeds United for £1.25m in November 1992, he is regarded as the catalyst in enabling United to become champions of England for the first time in 26 years.

He won four Premier League titles and two FA Cups - including a two doubles - in five seasons at Old Trafford.
