Ryan Giggs is warning that United cannot take lightly the purpose and goal-presence Darren Bent has added to a youthful and hungry Aston Villa side when Gerard Houllier’s men visit Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
Speaking to United’s matchday programme, Giggs says there is every reason to be wary of the challenge the Villans pose, and the 37-year-old is not being lulled into a sense of superiority regarding their lowly league placing.
A youthful Villa side came closer than any team this season to beating United in the league back in November. The Reds came back from 2-0 down with ten minutes to go to earn a draw.
“I was really impressed with them,” Giggs tells United Review. “Young players can come into a team sometimes and freeze, but they really got about us and made it a high tempo game. Sometimes if you slow things down you can come unstuck, but they kept going and it worked for a lot of the game. We didn’t play well, but the lads never gave up and managed to grind out a result.”
