Giggs: Do not let standards drop

Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United set a standard against Schalke they simply must not fall from if they are to complete a memorable trophy double.Sir Alex Ferguson made eight changes to his starting line-up for Wednesday's second leg and was still able to watch his side record a 4-1 win that allowed them to cruise into a Wembley final meeting with Barcelona on May 28.Of more immediate importance, it put a spring back into the Red Devils' step ahead of Sunday's crucial Premier League showdown with Chelsea at Old Trafford that, if not deciding the championship itself, will go a long way towards determining who will end up on top.In leaving so many players out, Ferguson was hoping to re-energise the players he intends to select at the weekend. Giggs, among those who remained on the bench, feels the stand-ins have shown the way forward."If we play to the level of that performance, we will be very difficult to beat," said Giggs."That is the benchmark. We have to try and keep to it."
