Ryan Giggs is 33 today and United’s vice-captain wants a fitting present: a victory against Everton.

Louis Saha is struggling with a knock so The Welsh Wizard could play as a striker tonight. After the draw against Chelsea on Sunday, Giggsy reckons collecting three points today is essential.

‘It is a local derby and it us always a tight game,’ he said. ‘But we need to keep the consistency going because if we are going to win the league, we have to be beating teams like Everton at home.’

‘Our performances over the last few weeks have been really good and we can approach the game with confidence,’ he said.

‘If we produce our best form, hopefully it will be enough to get us the three points.’

The question is, will we produce it? Last seeason’s corresponding fixture ended in a frustrating draw after they’ve got the lead at Old Trafford and Ryan Giggs have equalized with a spectacular goal in the 15th minute. United could not break down the Toffees in the following 75 minutes so we must make amends tonight.
