Ryan Giggs has hailed the depth of Manchester United's squad.
Giggs is expecting an improved showing from the Red Devils this season, and rates Sir Alex Ferguson's squad as stronger than ever.
"If you look at the squad at Wembley, there were players who didn't even get on the bench," said Giggs.
"There's Rafael, Federico Macheda, Wes Brown, Tom Cleverley, who has done brilliantly pre-season. There's Rio Ferdinand, we have got Anderson to come back.
"We have got a really strong squad, so injuries permitting throughout the season, we can be stronger than last year."
Veteran Giggs admits he is glad to see the back of the pre-season, and is looking forward to getting stuck into the new campaign.
"My legs don't feel any worse with pre-season training because I hated it when I was 17," he added.
"Every player hates pre-season because it is all friendly games. You just want the real games to start."
