Ryan Giggs has urged Manchester United to atone for recent errors with victory against Manchester City in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

United suffered their second defeat in less than a week on Wednesday night as Newcastle triumphed 3-0 against the title holders at St James' Park.

This result followed a weekend loss to Blackburn at Old Trafford, and means United have conceded ground to City in the race for the Barclays Premier League crown.

City are now three points clear at the top of the table, while they retain a superior goal difference to their local rivals.

On Sunday, however, the two sides will lock horns in a different competition, with United travelling to the Etihad Stadium for mouth-watering FA Cup clash.

And United legend Giggs is backing United to restore some pride by dumping the holders out of the competition at the first time of asking.

“We have a great scoring record this season so hopefully this is just a one off and we can get back to scoring ways on Sunday," he told manutd.com.

“It is obviously a big game against City in the FA Cup.

"The atmosphere will be good, we’ll take a load of fans there and hopefully we can get back to winning ways.”
