Ryan Giggs believes the two defeats to Manchester City cost Manchester United the title last season.

United were hammered 6-1 at Old Trafford then meekly surrendered 1-0 at the Etihad as Roberto Mancini’s side won the title for the first time since 1968.

United did themselves no favours and at one point had lead their rivals by 8 points but crumbled in the title run in, also losing 1-0 to Wigan and allowing Everton to fight back and claim a 4-4 draw despite being 3-1 down at Old Trafford.

United face City this Sunday at the Etihad, and veteran midfielder Giggs is desperate to ensure there is no repeat as he told Sky Sports:

“If we had drawn the game [at City] we would have won the league.

“Those two games were probably the difference so hopefully we can get the result and that will be the difference at the end of the season.”
