Ferguson concedes its advantage City after Newcastle loss.

London, Jan 05(ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that its now advantage Manchester City in the Premier League title race after their defeat at Sports Direct Arena to Newcastle last night.

City are now three points clear of United in the title race at the top of the table.

"Of course it's advantage Manchester City. We don't normally lose two on the bounce," said Ferguson.

But Ferguson also refused to press the panic button and said that his team had the necessary experience to bounce back from two defeats in a row, The Sun reports.

"It's no time to panic though. We have experience to cope with losing a game. We have to get the show on the road for the run-in in March and April," he added.

United were stunned by two brilliant strikes from Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye in both halves of the match before Phil Jones conceded another own goal to end a sorry afternoon for the Red Devils.

Ferguson was left overawed by the two Newcastle goals and bemoaned that his team couldn't make the most of the possession they enjoyed through the course of the match.

"We started reasonably well but they scored a fantastic goal. They got aggressive and made it difficult. It was a marvelous hit by Ba and the second one was a killer but we didn't make enough of our possession," he added. (ANI)
