RYAN GIGGS has warned his Man United team-mates not to take anything for granted in the title race.

United begin 2013 with a seven-point lead over nearest rivals Man City as they chase a record 20th League title.
But Giggs, who has 12 Premier League winners medals in his trophy cabinet, says United need to learn from the pain of missing out to City last May.
Giggs said: “We were this many points ahead with fewer games to go last season and it wasn’t enough.
“We are only halfway there and there are a lot of tough games to come.
“There is also the FA Cup and the Champions League, so there are other things to consider.
“We are in a great position and are happy where we are, but we know we have to carry on.”
United dropped eight points from their final four games as last season’s title push collapsed around them.
But Giggs does feel that the Old Trafford outfit are ideally placed to bring home the silverware.
Echoing the recent words of boss Alex Ferguson, he said: “From the manager’s experience and the players who have been here a long time, we know Christmas is the time to get down to business.
“If we are there or thereabouts in January and then go on a run of winning 10 or 12 games it is going to give us a great chance.
“There can be no mistakes. But usually when the stakes are high and the concentration is there, good players produce the goods.”
