The Reds have now racked up five consecutive wins and havenâ€™t conceded a goal since the dramatic late collapse against Manchester City, 450 minutes of football ago. Giggs says this improvement on the defensive side of the game owes something to a change of style.
â€śWeâ€™ve gone back to basics and defended really well since City,â€ť Giggs told MUTV after Saturdayâ€™s 1-0 win over Swansea.
â€śIt wasnâ€™t just the goals against City [that concerned us], it was also the chances that were being created against us in the other games.
â€śOur opponents were getting too many chances and our new goalkeeper, David De Gea, was having far too many shots to save.
â€śSolidity is something we have always prided ourselves on, at the back and throughout the team really.
â€śSwansea played some great football against us and kept the ball well, but they didnâ€™t really hurt us. It was a tough game for our midfielders and forwards but at the back we defended well and they didnâ€™t have many chances.â€ť
