United vs London sides: 2011/12
“Our form in London – we won nearly every game there apart from Chelsea – was very pleasing.” - Ryan Giggs
Ryan Giggs believes one of Manchester United’s greatest strengths last season was the team’s form against London clubs.
The capital has traditionally been a tricky location for the Reds but in 2011/12 Sir Alex’s men picked up 13 of a possible 15 points on the road and beat all five clubs – Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham, Queens Park Rangers – at Old Trafford.
It all bodes well for next season when there’ll be a sixth London side to contend with following West Ham’s promotion via the play-offs.
One of those home wins – the 8-2 victory against Arsenal – will remain in Ryan's memory for a long time.
“As a team performance you’ve got to look at the Arsenal game when you’re talking about highlights,” Giggs told ManUtd.com.
“To score eight goals against a team that has been one of our biggest rivals for so many years is something special.
