Giggs urges Man U to dethrone Chelsea during Premier League showdown

May 6, 2011 - London

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has urged his teammates to settle the Premier League title race once and for all by dethroning champions Chelsea on Sunday.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men know a draw at Old Trafford would still leave them in pole position to claim a 19th league title, while a victory would leave them six points clear of Chelsea with two games to go.

"We'll be trying to sew up the league as quickly as possible, starting Sunday. We have to go out and attack like Manchester United do at Old Trafford. The crowd wouldn't have it any other way," The Sun quoted Giggs, as saying.

"If we were sat back in the first 10 or 15 minutes, the crowd wouldn't have it. We've got to go and try and score goals and win the game. I think that is dangerous, to sit back against a team like Chelsea who can score goals against you," he added.

United have taken 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five games in the league, whereas Chelsea have a 100 per cent record in their previous five.
