Ryan Giggs is refusing to get carried away by Manchester United's seven-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

United, who blew an eight-point advantage to Manchester City last season, head to Wigan on New Year's Day having taken 37 points from a possible 42 since they were beaten by Tottenham at Old Trafford in September. But Giggs, a veteran of all 12 Premier League championship triumphs, acknowledges it is far too early to start thinking the job is done.

"We were this many points ahead with fewer games to go last season and it wasn't enough," said Giggs.
