Manchester United No2 Ryan Giggs blames injuries on their inconsistency this season.
The likes of Luke Shaw, Phil Jones and Wayne Rooney have all spent significant time in the treatment room, something Giggs believes has been a catalyst to the side’s problems.
“The consistency has been frustrating,” he told the Telegraph. “We would go on a good run and then have a disappointing result. Obviously there have been a lot of injuries.
“A lot of them have been freak injuries – shoulders and Luke Shaw’s leg.
“So it seems to have a domino effect when you do get a few injuries and we have just never got out of that. We are nine, 10 weeks left of the season and we are still in the FA Cup, still in the Europa League and still trying to get that top-four spot.
“We are still fighting and we still have something to play for.”
