Ryan Giggs has told his former club Manchester United that it will be ‘difficult’ to beat Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday in the Premier League.
Man United will host Arsenal for the first time this season and will hope to extend their unbeaten run to five matches after the final whistle.
The Red Devils have not tasted a defeat in their last four matches across all competitions and despite that, they occupy the 15th position in the league.
United are the favourites to carry the day at the Theatre of Dreams but Ryan Giggs, who won 13 Premier League honours, has warned his former team-mate, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, that the Gunners will be difficult to beat.
‘It will be difficult because Arsenal have turned a corner under Mikel Arteta and look strong and look solid,’ Premier League legend Giggs told the Webby and O’Neill YouTube channel.
‘So it will be difficult, but we’re in good form. Looking at the last couple of performances and results, we’ve been on fire.
‘We’ve been scoring lots of goals and great goals too. That’s good for the players coming in. We look full of energy.
‘Against Spurs [when Manchester United lost 6-1], we looked like we lacked fitness. But since that international break, we’ve come back firing and looked fit and strong.’
Manchester United have fetched out seven points from five matches and occupy the 15th position in the Premier League.
The Wales manager claimed Manchester United have the chance to ‘capitalise’ on a Premier League season in which their rivals are extensively inconsistent.
‘You look at the league table, if we win tomorrow and the game in hand we’ll be in a strong position,’ Giggs added.
‘It’s a weird league. No one has hit top form or been consistent. Liverpool and Man city aren’t flying and obviously Liverpool have had their injury problems.
‘We need to capitalise on that.’
