Ryan Giggs: Man Utd perfect blend of youth and experience difficult to stop in title race

Jose Mourinho’s men have made a superb start to the new season, notching back-to-back 4-0 wins over West Ham and Swansea.

Club legend Giggs believes the Red Devils, who face Leicester next weekend, will be ‘very difficult to stop’ this term as they strive to secure their first title since 2013.

And that’s because Mourinho has a wealth of options at his disposal with a good mix of youthful attacking flare and wily experience.

Giggs told Sky Sports: “When Jose Mourinho’s sides get going they are very difficult to stop.

“He’s done in the past and, while it’s important dealing with the expectations with the media making a lot of it, managing that is something he is great at.

“There’s a lot of players contributing to goals which is crucial to winning the league”

“There’s also a lot of experience within the squad and they’ll all play their parts.

“Michael Carrick and Ashley Young haven’t been involved yet but have that experience to slot back in and be trusted, while Chris Smalling and David de Gea also have that experience of winning the league.

“Before the first two games I thought that the title was between Manchester City, who have the firepower, and Manchester United, who have the balance to their squad.

“They look powerful with Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku, but what is pleasing to see is the creative players doing well as well.

“Henrikh Mkhitaryan already has four assists and that will do him the world of good, so hopefully he can get back to his Dortmund form.

“There’s a lot of players contributing to goals which is crucial to winning the league.

“Juan Mata scores year-in-year-out, Antony Martial chipping in and when Marcus Rashford and Mkhitaryan join the party you’ve got options.”

United beat Swansea on Saturday lunch-time thanks to goals from Eric Bailly, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial.

Mourinho and co now have a week off before they welcome Leicester to Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
