Playing for a draw too risky -- Giggs

Ryan Giggs declared yesterday that Manchester United have no more reason to regret being reeled in at the top of the Premier League table than Chelsea do, and warned his side will go all out for victory in Sunday's title-decider at Old Trafford.

Warning that any temptation United might have to seek a draw against Chelsea would be "dangerous," Giggs said his club were not the only ones to have thrown away a points advantage -- Ancelotti's side had established an eight-point lead by October 23 after seven wins in nine games.

"You don't have to worry too much about what's happening," Giggs said. "We could go back further when they were 10 points in front of us."

"I think it's dangerous (to play for a draw) against a team like Chelsea who can score goals against you," he said. "We have to go out and attack like Manchester United do at Old Trafford. The crowd would not have it any other way.

"Both teams realise that (it's all over if we win it.) It's going to be difficult because they're a top team, but our form is good. We're not worried about what's happened in the past. All we can control is what happens in the future, starting with Chelsea."
