Ryan Giggs is refusing to stoke up the Manchester derby fires.

United and City are limping into the first Mancunian showdown of the season following midweek Champions League defeats. Yet their dominance of the Premier League scene is such that the pair have already established a massive advantage over third-placed Chelsea of 10 points in United's case, and seven for City.

"It doesn't mean anything extra because it is City," said Giggs. "There are different rivalries. Liverpool has always been the biggest rival for me. It has always been the biggest test."
