Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs insists there's no concern over a tough start to the season.

United must face Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in the opening five games of the season.

That stiff beginning to their Premier League title defence probably explains why United are presently third favourites for this year's championship, although Giggs said: "It is not something we are worried about.

"We are the champions. We know it is always hard to defend. But we have experienced it before and we will try and do it again this season."
