Man Utd tipped to finish ahead of Chelsea and Leicester by Ryan Giggs
Manchester United can finish this season with a bang, says club legend Ryan Giggs.
The Red Devils secured a hugely impressive 2-0 win over arch rivals Manchester City on Sunday.
Bruno Fernandes - who was a big-money buy in January - looked impressive throughout the showdown.
United currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind Chelsea and eight behind Leicester.
Giggs says his former club have the upper hand as we get towards the business end of the season.
"[United are] in a strong position," Giggs told Premier League promotions.
"Momentum is huge, whether you're trying to fight off relegation or you're going for a Champions League spot.
"Momentum at the moment is with United and the games can't come quick enough.
"And slowly they're getting players back. [Scott] McTominay, [Eric] Bailly's back, hopefully Marcus [Rashford] will be back soon, [Odion] Ighalo's come into it done well, [Bruno] Fernandes.
"So these players who are coming back, they're coming into a team who are full of confidence rather than sort of maybe rushing them back because they're not playing well.
"So momentum is with United, obviously Chelsea did really well [on Sunday], Leicester are stuttering a little bit and underneath Sheffield United.
"It's going to go to the wire but momentum is key at this moment in time."
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed his side's performance, but was quick to reiterate that the team is still a work in progress.
"We feel we're improving all the time and we know we lack one, two or three players and some experience, to be considered a title contender," Solskjaer said.
"We know that and we're not going to start talking about that now.
"We're going to start talking about getting up up the table, getting more points and challenging for that top four because Chelsea and Leicester are too far ahead of us for my liking.
"It's a massive win because Leicester and City, we have to look up and try to catch them."
