Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs is looking forward to his first Barclays Premier League trip to Swansea City.

Swansea's play-off victory last season assured they'd be the first Welsh-based side to play in the Premier League, but for Giggs, a former Wales captain, it'll be his first professional club game back in his home country.

Brendan Rodgers' side are up to tenth in the table, and are unbeaten at home, and Giggs is expecting a tough afternoon at the Liberty Stadium.

"It's fantastic news for Welsh football that Swansea are doing so well and, as a Welshman, I'm very much looking forward to Manchester United visiting Wales for the first ever time in the Premier League," he said.

"Swansea is a great city and the Swans have tremendous support in a terrific stadium. All Premier League games are tough and I'm sure the match against the Swans will be no different."

Giggs has made just six league appearances this season, and will be hoping he can fill in amid any tiredness in the United ranks following the international break, which saw the likes of Nani and Phil Jones in action.
