Ryan Giggs says Manchester United's defence will be key to them successfully defending their Premiership title.

"We do have plenty of attacking flair," observed the Welshman.

"We have at least four or five players who can change a game and take people on. That is what Manchester United is all about.

"But you cannot lose sight of the fact defences win you championships and that is what happened last year.

"The defenders provide the platform for attacking players to produce the skills they have. We must defend well and be solid as a team."
