Giggs plays down unbeaten talk

Manchester United's Ryan Giggs has cooled talk of an unbeaten season, cautioning that there is still plenty of football left to be played.
 
United sit on top of the English Premier League table, two points clear of Manchester City with two games in hand and having yet to be defeated after 20 fixtures.
 
But the veteran midfielder says it is far too early to be discussing the prospect of an unbeaten season, especially with a crunch clash at Tottenham right around the corner.
 
"It's been a strange season where anyone can beat anyone so we realise that every game from now is going to be tough," Giggs said.
 
"We've got to play against all our rivals, we've got to play against teams that will be fighting relegation and anything can happen, so we're experienced enough to know we've got tough games ahead and anything can happen."
 
Giggs sent United through to the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday, scoring from the penalty spot as the Red Devils defeated bitter rivals Liverpool 1-0.
 
United are on track for their 19th league title this season - one that would see them overtake Liverpool as the most successful top-flight team in English football history.
 
But Giggs insists his team-mates are not concerned by such records.
 
"I think the manager (Sir Alex Ferguson) wanted to do that when he came down from Scotland, but I think it's more of a fans thing than a player's or manager's aim," he said.
 
"Of course it would be great to do. But it's more of a fan's thing to do to boast that you've won more league titles than Liverpool."
 
"It's something that the fans would love to have in their locker but as a team you can't get yourself caught up in stuff like that."
 
"You've got to concentrate on winning the league because it's tough enough to win the league as it is."
 
"No matter because you want to win it because of winning this or that, you want to win it because you realise it's a tough league."
