Giggs prepared to be patient

Ryan Giggs concedes he will not start many games with Manchester United this season, but insists he will be ready when called upon.

• Blog: Striking the right note

Giggs, who enjoyed a busy summer with Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics, has featured just six times for United thus far this term. In his last start, Giggs was taken off at half-time as the club suffered a shock home defeat to Tottenham.

However, the 38-year-old is prepared to be patient as he awaits more game time from manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

"With the players we have I don't expect to start every game," said Giggs. "I am just trying to pick up games wherever I can and influence them like I have done in the past.

"I haven't found it difficult. I want to play and I want to be in the team. But I am experienced enough to know that come the business end of the season, the experienced lads will be needed and I will be ready."

Giggs is tipped to be on the bench at Chelsea this Sunday, and he fully expects the current Premier League leaders to be in contention for the title come the end of the season.

"Chelsea are a talented team," said Giggs. "They have changed the personnel a bit with Oscar, Hazard and Mata, who play in those little pockets and are so hard to pick up.

"Only time will tell if they are better. But it doesn't really matter because you know you are up against a very good team when you pay Chelsea, and it will always be tough at Stamford Bridge."
