As United prepare to take on the reigning champions at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, Giggs has played down the enormity of the rivalry as he believes the long-running competition with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea is much bigger.
"It doesn't mean anything extra because it is City," said Giggs.
"There are different rivalries.
"Liverpool has always been the biggest rival for me. It has always been the biggest test.
"The added dynamic is that they are on our doorstep. But we still want to win the league no matter who we are competing against."
