Ryan Giggs says Manchester United need to be strong and build on the back-to-back wins over West Ham and Everton before the international break.
The Reds get closer to a run of tough fixtures starting with West Brom on Monday night at The Hawthorns, before a home clash with Chelsea and then back-to-back away games to Manchester City and Arsenal in the coming weeks.
Louis van Gaal`s assistant also admits there have been signs of improvement as of late but says the team will need be in good form ahead of the coming fixtures.
"These are the games you want to be involved in and play in. And they will be a test," Giggs told Manutd.com earlier this week.
"Chelsea have probably been the standout team so far with City just behind them and we want to be up there testing ourselves against those teams. We feel that we do belong up there but we perhaps haven't shown it consistently this season.
"We've shown glimpses over the last few weeks and hopefully we'll have a lot of players coming back for those games. The form has slowly begun to get better and better and we want to hit form going into those matches."
Ryan Giggs also revealed he is enjoying his career as assistant manager to Louis van Gaal and is working hard with the United coaches to produce good results.
"It's a great experience for me to work under such a top manager who has such a good track record," Giggs added.
"I'm really enjoying it and the manager has been really good with me.
"I'm doing as much as I can to make sure we're in form and ready for each game. A lot of work goes into that and we're slowly seeing the benefits of it."
