United'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 Mourinho'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 Mourinho's first spell at Chelsea, they got off to good starts, and we didn't manage to catch them. It'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."
