Giggs guarded in title chase

Ryan Giggs claims Manchester United will not allow themselves to get carried away in their title bid, despite pulling 15 points clear.

The Red Devils edged further into the distance on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers, with reigning champions Manchester City left with it all to do if they are to cling on to their crown.

United have been in this position enough times, though, to know that it is important to never take your foot off the gas and allow complacency to set in.

Giggs, a man with 12 title medals to his name, is aware of that fact more than most and the 39-year-old midfielder is adamant that United will keep pushing all the way to the finishing post.

Asked how they would be approaching things from this point on, the evergreen Welshman told Sky Sports: "Just what we have been doing, which is win the next game. That's all we can do, not look too far ahead and not get too excited.

"I think the main thing is we're in good form and we have got nearly everyone fit. The manager has got a big squad to choose from, so he can chop and change and keep everyone fresh.

"We're in good form and that is all you can ask, individually and as a team. We are winning scrappy games, we are winning games spectacularly, so we just have to keep it going."

Giggs was among the goals again at Loftus Road on Saturday, as he made his 999th senior appearance, and he feels that United further underlined their title credentials with a gutsy display.

He added: "It wasn't spectacular first half, we had to dig in. Rafa's goal was the outstanding thing in the first half, it was an unbelievable strike and he deserves it because he's been brilliant all season.

"To go 2-0 up, it gave us that extra cushion. At 1-0 you just never know what could happen. Once we got that second goal we kept the ball well and it knocked the stuffing out of QPR. We ran out comfortable winners in the end."

ave to go for Everton myself. Leon Osman looks like everyone's mate down the pub. Leighton Baines can't take himself too seriously with his dodgy haircut. Steven Piennar looks like he'd cry if you were nasty to him. And Tim Howard looks like he'd give you the most perfect man-hug you could ever imagine.
