Louis van Gaal happy with win, says Rooney is fit to face Stoke


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says the game against Hull City saw his team dominate the way he wants for the first time.

The Red Devils enjoyed 77% of possession and created 12 goal opportunities as they eased past Steve Bruce's side by 3-0.

"It's the first match we've dominated from the first minute to the last in a way that I like. I was very pleased.

"We scored three, created many chances, we didn't give away many chances and we kept a clean sheet again."

Asked to assess injuries to Angel di Maria and Wayne Rooney, the Dutchman said: "He [Angel di Maria] did not come off as a precaution - he is out of Tuesday's game against Stoke, it's too close.

"But we will have to wait and see how bad it is. We will know more tomorrow.

"He [Wayne Rooney] said to me he is fine to play against Stoke."
