​Giggs delivers opinion on Man Utd's ferocious start to the season

Legendary winger Ryan Giggs has stated that the current Manchester United side have strength in depth in their squad to go a long way this season.

United have started off their Premier League campaign in blistering fashion with two consecutive 4-0 victories and Giggs has stated that the Red Devils can carry the momentum throughout the course of the campaign due to their strong squad.

"I think it was documented when the fixtures came out, while there's no easy games in the Premier League, it was a pretty good start for Manchester United and the team have delivered with two 4-0 wins," Giggs told Sky Sports.

"When Jose Mourinho's sides get going they are very difficult to stop. He's done in the past and, while it's important dealing with the expectations with the media making a lot of it, managing that is something he is great at.

"There's also a lot of experience within the squad and they'll all play their parts. Michael Carrick and Ashley Young haven't been involved yet but have that experience to slot back in and be trusted, while Chris Smalling and David de Gea also have that experience of winning the league.

"Before the first two games I thought that the title was between Manchester City, who have the firepower, and Manchester United, who have the balance to their squad.

"They look powerful with Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku, but what is pleasing to see is the creative players doing well as well. Henrikh Mkhitaryan already has four assists and that will do him the world of good, so hopefully he can get back to his Dortmund form.

"There's a lot of players contributing to goals which is crucial to winning the league. Juan Mata scores year-in-year-out, Anthony Martial chipping in and when Marcus Rashford and Mkhitaryan join the party you've got options. You can't just rely on Lukaku."
