Ryan Giggs: A growing influence in the final stages of United's season

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.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
