Giggs: United are better by half

04 May 2009 09:49
Ryan Giggs has called on Manchester United to repeat their first-half super show against Arsenal on Tuesday in order to complete their passage to the Champions League final. Such was the brilliance of United's performance at Old Trafford last week, they are slightly unfortunate not to be counting down the days to Rome on May 27 already. "If we play to the ability we did in the first half last week we will have no problems," said the former Wales skipper. "We went out to get the crowd going and play at a quick tempo. That is what we do when we are at our best. "Arsenal are a top team and they are capable of scoring goals so we are under no illusions about how difficult this is going to be. "But our form in Europe has been excellent and we are in a good position." Giggs is refusing to accept the Premier League title race is over even though the Old Trafford outfit only need seven more points from their remaining four games to be certain of holding off Liverpool's challenge. However, the newly crowned PFA player of the year is now more interested in quelling Arsenal's threat. "You have to look after Arsenal's quality players," said Giggs. "They have so many matchwinners; Fabregas, Adebayor, Walcott, Van Persie, if he is fit. The threat is obvious, so you have to try and nullify it."
