Ryan Giggs: Manchester United can’t afford to fall behind at Chelsea
Ryan Giggs says Manchester United must not fall behind at Chelsea on Sunday as they look to close the gap on league leaders
Ryan Giggs has warned Manchester United that they must sure up their defence ahead of their trip to Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are in second place, four points behind Roberto Di Matteo’s pacesetters as they look to close the gap on the Blues with victory at Stamford Bridge.
United have fallen behind in eight of their 12 games so far this season and the Welshman admits the Red Devils cannot afford to concede first against Chelsea.
“There are two ways of looking at it,” said Giggs. “Obviously we are pleased that we are able to come back and have shown great character in those eight games.
“But you cannot keep relying on the lads up front to score the goals. It is something we have looked at and are still looking at.
“It has happened again against Braga but against Chelsea if we go behind it will be tough to come back.”
