Manchester United must cut out mistakes, warns Giggs


LONDON (AFP) - Ryan Giggs insists Manchester United cannot afford to keep playing catch-up if they want to regain the Premier League title.

Alex Ferguson's second placed side head to leaders Chelsea for Sunday's summit meeting having managed just three clean sheets in 12 matches this season.

Although United have won 10 of the last 11 games in all competitions, they have conceded four times in the last two after gifting their opponents head starts.

Stoke were allowed to go 1-0 up at Old Trafford last Saturday before losing 4-2, while Portuguese side Braga sailed into a 2-0 lead in Manchester on Tuesday before losing 3-2 in the Champions League.
