Louis van Gaal: I've said to the players we could have won


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he was not pleased with the 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils snatched a late equaliser through striker Robin van Persie but the Dutchman explained that his side could have taken all three points against the Premier League leaders.

"I've said to the players we could have won but nevertheless we didn't and that's our fault," van Gaal told BBC's Match of the Day.

"When you can do that again the best team in this league at this moment it is a good sign.

"I'm not pleased as I still have the feeling we could have won today and that we don't take our opportunities at the moment.

"They scored in the second half then we have to fight again until the last minute.

"I am grateful for the support of the fans as they also admire the spirit in this team.

"The red card doesn't change anything as it was the last minute and we only had the free-kick to take.

"OK, it came from the free-kick but only if he was marking Fellaini, You will have to ask Jose Mourinho that.

"We had a lot of chances but we don't finish these chances, then Chelsea make the first goal and it becomes much more difficult as Chelsea play possession football, make the pitch big and we have to run and run.

"We kept together and I think we deserved it. I have seen that we could have beat Chelsea, I'm saying that nearly every game but this is against Chelsea who are a top team and we were at least equal.

"The most pleasing thing is we are showing again we are believing in making a goal in spite of the result being bad.

"1-0 behind it is fantastic the players are running until the 90th minute to equalise or win."
