Giggs: Man Utd destiny still in their own hands

Even after two successive defeats Manchester United's Ryan Giggs knows the Reds chase for the PL title is still lies in their own hands. The reigning champions also have a game in hand and Giggs is remaining upbeat.

"We're obviously disappointed with the result," Giggs told MUTV. "After losing last weekend, we wanted to come here and put on a good performance.

"We didn't do that in the first half - our passing was sloppy and our movement wasn't good enough. We just couldn't get it going, the tempo wasn't good.

"Going a goal behind and down to ten men, we had to arrange our shape a little bit differently. We came out and played a lot better in the second half. We were on top, we created some good chances and their keeper made a couple of good saves. Had one of those efforts gone in then we could have gone on to win it but it wasn't to be.

"Some of our lads now go away for the international break. Hopefully we won't have any injuries and we can get back on track against Villa."
