Liverpool still our biggest rival - Man Utd great Giggs

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs feels that Liverpool are still the clubs biggest rival despite the recent emergence of neighbours Manchester City.

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.

"Arsenal were a brilliant team and we had some ferocious battles with them. Chelsea were also a brilliant team under (Jose) Mourinho and now City are a good team as well.

"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."
