“It’s been a good few weeks,” said Giggs. “You saw what we’re capable of (at Fulham) and that’s the standard we set ourselves. It was a similar story at Queens Park Rangers. There, we just didn’t finish the chances off. Today we managed to score the goals. To come to a place like Craven Cottage and have that sort of movement and interplay was first-class. For myself and Michael Carrick in midfield, the movement in front of us was brilliant. Obviously the defending was good as well. But when you have so many options on the ball – people running in behind, people dropping in the hole – we’re a very difficult team to play. The performance was really pleasing.”
