Ryan Giggs believes that Louis van Gaal has brought back Manchester United's attacking flair which was missing under David Moyes.

Giggs believes this is the closest that the Red Devils have come to emulating their performance under Sir Alex Ferguson and that their current slump in the league is temporary and only a matter of time till they start hitting it right.

United finished in seventh spot last season, their worst performance in the Premier League and have not shown any sign of recovering from that form in the initial few games. However, their win over Arsenal at the Emirates will give them some much needed confidence and can be a pedestal for them to push ahead and secure their position in the Champions League next season.

Giggs believes that their attacking prowess will only get better as the season progresses and they get their players back from injury.

"You're seeing attacking football, us trying to score goals and taking the risks but we've not been able to get any consistency due to injuries," said Giggs

"There are a lot of similarities to Sir Alex. He [Van Gaal] sets standards and if you drop below them he's not happy.

"He demands that in every training session. He wants the same intensity as if it was a game.

"Obviously the results haven't been brilliant but we're getting there.

"It was a big win for us at the weekend against a very good Arsenal team so we've just got to build on that and try and get some consistency," he added.

The Red Devils will now host Hull City at Old Trafford this weekend and will be looking to cash in on their indifferent form and embark on a winning run. Meanwhile, Luke Shaw is expected to be out for more than three weeks after reportedly damaging his ankle ligaments last season.
