The 39-year-old marked his 999th appearance on Saturday with his second Premier League goal of the season to seal a 2-0 win at QPR that cemented the team's 12-point lead at the summit with 11 games remaining.

After struggling during the early stages of the campaign, it has been a dazzling few weeks for the Welsh winger and comes at a perfect time where squad rotation is a necessity with United pushing for three trophies.

With a week to go before Old Trafford welcomes back the visit of former favourite Cristiano Ronaldo, along with his Real Madrid team-mates, Giggs said: "It is a headache for the manager but a good one.

"We are not looking too far ahead and we are not getting too excited. But we are in good form and the manager has a big squad to choose from, which allows him to chop and change and that is all you can ask for at this stage."

The fitness of Robin van Persie remains a concern after the striker fell into a TV camera at Loftus Road, although it would be a major surprise if the Dutchman failed to get the nod given the importance of the match.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
