Unitedâ€™s management are particularly wary of the importance of remaining within touching distance of Chelsea - who were traditionally quick out of the blocks in Jose Mourinhoâ€™s first spell at the club - and Manchester City, who made an explosive start to the Premier League season with a 4-0 demolition of Newcastle on Monday evening.
Giggs explained: "I think we need to get off to a good start. During Mourinhoâ€™s first spell at Chelsea, they got off to good starts, and we didnâ€™t manage to catch them. Itâ€™s been well documented that we do have tough start but we got a great result at Swansea, and hopefully we can carry that on."
