Ryan Giggs is impressed by the young players now coming through at Manchester United.

He's convinced his younger team-mates will respond positively to this season's title setback.

"It's been great for the more established players to see the young players come through and do so well," Giggs told ManUtd.com.

"I know from myself as a young player who came through how tough it can be sometimes. When everything's going well for the team, it's all great and everything's rosy. Then you hit a bit of bad form and it's more difficult for a younger player because you haven't got a platform to fall back upon.

"[That said] I was really impressed with the consistency of all the young players and the new signings who came in last season."
