Ryan Giggs has been involved in enough title races to know Manchester United's showdown with Chelsea will feature a few more twists and turns.
United went nine points clear of Chelsea with their 2-1 win at Fulham but the champions have a game in hand and Giggs is taking nothing for granted.
'You don't expect it (the title),' he told BBC Radio Five Live.
'I've been fortunate enough to win the league a few times and you have to earn it.
'There will be ups and downs where you'll be dropping points when you're expected to win and it's how you come back from those games.
'You have to have the character in the dressing room to come back.'
United are also still challenging for the Champions League and the FA Cup and Giggs is hoping they can turn a promising position into trophies.
'All three? That's what we're going for,' he said. 'Obviously we're in a good position in the league but you can't predict which is your best chance. You just try to win every game.
'I think this team has potential. We are creating goals and scoring goals and playing attractive football like Manchester United team have done in the past and we have a solid defence that we build that on.
'But you can't judge teams until they've won things. Not just one trophy but a lot of trophies over several years.'
Giggs is determined to make the most of the final few years of a glittering career.
'I'm 33, I've got two or three years left in the game and I want to enjoy every game.
'You don't look two far into the future. At United there is always a big game just around the corner. You don't look at what is happening next year or in two years.'
