Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs concedes Arsenal deserve their place atop the Premier League table, but insists that the reigning champions can still retain the title this season, reports

The 39-year-old midfielder praised the Gunners for their fine start to the 2013/14 campaign, which has seen them establish a seven-point advantage over United.

After recording a 2-0 victory over Southampton at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, Arsene Wenger's side edged further ahead of Manchester United, after David Moyes's men were held to a 2-2 draw with Cardiff City.

"It has been a disappointing start," admitted Giggs in an interview with talkSPORT. "The last ten games have not been too bad – I think we were unbeaten in eight or nine games – but yesterday was a game we should be winning.

"Only Arsenal – who are up there and deserve to be up there - have shown consistent form. It's been a crazy season, we need to hang in there when we're not playing at our brilliant best and get a run together.

"The team that does that will have a great chance of winning the league."

With just six wins from their opening 12 games, Manchester United know that they'll need to make a significant improvement if they are to close the gap on leaders Arsenal, who have recorded nine wins and one draw.

After their opening day defeat against Aston Villa, the Gunners' only other loss came against the sixth-placed Red Devils at Old Trafford prior to the international break.
