Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs is remaining calm in the aftermath of back to back defeats for his side.
Alex Ferguson’s side have lost back to back Premiership ties against Chelsea and Liverpool while also loosing the influential Nani to injury for up to four weeks.
However, the veteran midfielder has been there and seen it all before and he is remaining level headed as United look forward to their FA Cup encounter against Arsenal on Saturday.
“You try to keep a level head no matter what is happening,” stated Giggs.
“If you are on a 10-game winning streak or have lost a couple of games, you need to keep the same calmness and not get too carried away.Criticism comes with the territory.
“We have had two defeats. Outside the club, people are thinking what is wrong. The only way to stop them saying that is to do it on the pitch. That is what we intend to do, starting tomorrow.”
United have the advantage of an extended break over their rivals as Arsenal were in action against Barcelona midweek, with Giggs refusing to believe the result will have any baring on Arsenal’s confidence ahead of the game.
“We both have a point to prove,” added Giggs.
“Arsenal were swept aside by Barcelona but that can happen because they are such a good team.
“At times this year Arsenal have been brilliant. They have players who can hurt you. We are well aware of that.
“We are neck and neck in the Premier League. Whoever wins it, it can be the platform to go on and be successful this season.”
