Cape Town - Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs believes the club will need to add another "five or six players" to the first team squad in order to compete with the best.

A 3-1 victory over Norwich City saw United leap up the table to seventh after a disappointing start to the season that has seen Solskjaer come under pressure.

A draw against leaders Liverpool last weekend as well as back-to-back away wins over Partizan Belgrade and the Canaries has seen that pressure ease slightly.

The Red Devils brought in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James and Harry Maguire during the summer transfer window and Giggs has urged the club to bring in more.

"We need to bring quality in," Giggs told the United Stand.

"Ole has brought three in who are all doing well. His dealings have been very good so far. Give him the money other managers have had to get Manchester United players.

"Get another five or six players like that in, we will see a real difference. They are missing that creative player.

"It is no coincidence, the best performances have been against good teams. The lesser teams are always harder to break down.

"We are probably just a bit shy of them creative players and I think Ole recognises that."
