Louis van Gaal on a disappointing draw and individual errors


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was disappointed after his side could only manage a draw against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night.

Three points from The Hawthorns game would have seen the Red Devils move up to fourth in the table but van Gaal's men needed a late Daley Blind goal to rescue a point against a determined Alan Irvine side.

"I'm very disappointed because we played our best match of the season and the result is not good enough," he told Sky Sports.

"I think we could have won but that doesn't count in our world so that's why I'm disappointed, but I also have to be happy because we created a lot of chances and only two shots from West Bromwich Albion turned into goals.

"We gave it away because of our individual errors and that's a pity.

"I've seen on the training ground now that we are better, the players understand the formation more and I've seen it today which is why it's such a pity we didn't get the result we deserved."

Belgium international Marouane Fellaini was heavily involved in many of Manchester United's moves after coming on as a substitute and the Dutchman was happy with the contribution of the 26-year-old.

"[Ander] Herrera has played a normal game, not very good but normal, but we have to look also for physical talents and maybe that's our problem," van Gaal said.

"I'm a coach who is always thinking about creative players but in England you also need physical bodies in your team and Fellaini is one of these."
