Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits they're fortunate to have Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs as examples for their young players.

The pair are still in tip-top condition and continue to excel this term, with Giggs crossing for Javier Hernandez's equaliser at Chelsea on Sunday. Indeed, the Welshman has the best minutes-to-assist ratio in the Barclays Premier League this season.

"The youngsters couldn't have a better mentor," Ferguson told manutd.com. "That's for sure. Him and Scholes are different types of midfielders but they've proved by their dedication in looking after themselves that they can play to that age. No question.

"I think Scholesy says: 'If he can do it, I can do it!' Paul came on the other night and changed the game a little bit. It was amazing as the focus went on to Scholes. The ball was like a magnet to him. Ryan was on the left-hand side doing what he was doing all game."
