Ryan Giggs feels Paul Scholes could be the difference for Manchester United at FA Cup opponents Liverpool.

He hopes the lift which Scholes has given to the Reds since coming out of retirement could pay dividends again at Anfield.

"It's great to have him back because he's great to play with and great to have around the place," Giggs told manutd.com.

"You just see him on the training pitch and he just does things that other players simply can't do."

United have played three and won three since Scholes returned to the side and it's a well-timed sequence of results, according to Giggs.

"This is the time of the season where you want to be hitting good form, and I feel that we're doing that now."
