Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United can close the gap between themselves and Premier League leaders Arsenal.

The defending champions fell a staggering 12 points behind the Gunners after a 1-0 loss to Everton at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

We have had a few disappointing results over the last couple of weeks

However, United legend Giggs is warning his team-mates that they can’t afford to feel sorry for themselves after a poor start to the season.

“We have to pick ourselves up,” Giggs said.

“We can’t feel sorry for ourselves for too long. We have a home game against Newcastle on Saturday and hopefully we will get a different result.

“We were on a pretty good run. We just have to get over this disappointment now and get on another.”

Giggs added: “The gap is bridgeable.

“Hopefully we can start picking up points again but we will get a better idea come the new year. We have had a few disappointing results over the last couple of weeks.

“The performances haven’t been that bad. Maybe we are just not getting the rub of the green or taking our chances when we should.

“It is the story of a few games this season. When we have been on top we have not taken our chances.

“If you do that in this league you are going to get punished.”
