SUNDERLAND, United Kingdom (AFP) - Gareth Barry is confident Manchester City will be able to chase down Manchester United at the top of the table as the champions prepare to face Sunderland on Wednesday.

Roberto Mancini's team have responded to their 3-2 defeat in the Manchester derby earlier this month with consecutive victories.

That loss to their bitter rivals increased United's lead to six points but second placed City managed to reduce the deficit to four over the weekend.

Barry scored in stoppage-time to secure a 1-0 win over a stubborn Reading side on Saturday before United dropped two points with a 1-1 draw at Swansea on Sunday.
