LONDON (AP) -- Driven on by memories of last season's extraordinary title climax, Manchester United is in no mood to relax despite holding a seven-point cushion over fierce rival Manchester United heading into the second half of the Premier League campaign.

United, usually the coolest team around in championship run-ins, surrendered an eight-point advantage with six games left as City claimed a first English title in 44 years by finishing with six straight wins.

Playing his 21st year at United, Ryan Giggs has a better idea than anyone of the twists and turns still to come.

Speaking ahead of United's trip to Wigan on Tuesday, Giggs says "we're only halfway there and there are a lot of tough games to come ... we know we have to carry on producing."

City hosts Stoke.
