We'll win it back - Giggs

RYAN Giggs is desperate to see Manchester United's big guns emerge from an injury nightmare and throw down a serious title challenge to bitter rivals Manchester City.

"You hope the big players that you sign fit in straight away," said the 38-year-old Giggs, who will be making his 600th Premier League appearance if he plays some part against Wigan tomorrow.

"Sometimes it doesn't happen. With Shinji and Robin it has happened straight away, which gives everyone a lift in the squad.

"Training is a lot sharper and we are all fighting for places. What happened last season was tough for everyone but you have to come back in the right manner, which is what we hope to do.

"There are a lot of quality teams out there but you are always determined. We want to get it back," said a defiant Giggs.
