Been there, seen it, done it... but Ryan Giggs remains hungry for success. With his United contract extended to 2009, the Welsh winger wants to win a tenth league title and break Sir Bobby Charlton's appearances record...

Do you expect Arsenal to be United's main title rivals or will Liverpool and Chelsea stake a genuine claim?
I think all the big four teams are capable of going on good runs. Whoever can put a string of results together and handle suspensions and injuries later in the season will probably end up being champions. It might also come down to which of the big four can take the most points off each other.

Looking back on your trip to the Emirates, how disappointing was it to concede a late equaliser – did it feel like a defeat?
It did really because the three points were within our grasp and we were robbed of them at the death. But you've got to get on with things and if you look back at the game there last season when they scored a late winner, we've actually left with a better result this time round. They beat us twice last season and we came back well from both of those games. We need to do that again. The way we played gave us a lot of confidence.

Was the reaction of the Arsenal players at the end of the game a sign of the respect they hold for this United team?
Probably. Some of their players thought they'd won the game when the final whistle went. I'm not sure we would have celebrated like that if we'd have drawn at home, but I suppose they were excited to score so late on.
