Ryan Giggs has warned Manchester United not to underestimate Swansea City when they host the Swans in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Red Devils will return to Premier League action this weekend after the international break as they look to try and end the current campaign on a high.

Manchester United are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and finish as close to Manchester City as possible in the top flight.

Jose Mourinho’s men are aiming to secure a spot in next season’s Champions League after having been dumped out of the competition by Sevilla earlier this month.

Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League last season so it looks as though they will definitely improve on that finish.

However, former Red Devils midfielder Giggs has warned Manchester United that they will come in for a tough test against the Swans at Old Trafford this weekend.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Giggs said: “It’s not going to be easy for Manchester United against Swansea on Saturday.

“United have not got a great record against them, having been beaten twice away from home in 2015, while they got a draw at Old Trafford last season.

“Obviously we beat them emphatically earlier this season, when Paul Pogba scored a great goal, so hopefully the players will show their quality again and get the job done.

“You’d expect them to do that against a side struggling and further cement that top-four place, with either Chelsea or Tottenham set to drop points on Sunday.”

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in the 2012-13 campaign.

The Red Devils finished sixth last term but won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge.
