Louis van Gaal on a "lucky" win, rues Manchester United errors


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says last night's win against Southampton should be archived as a lucky one.

The hosts had plenty of chances and looked superior throughout the game but the Red Devils took three vital points from the St Mary's Stadium as they move up to third in the table.

"We lost the ball too easily in the first half because we didn't have very good positional play," van Gaal said.

"The only chances Southampton created were when we lost the ball, and that was not good.

"We needed confidence on the ball, which we didn't have, and I said something about that at half-time. I think we were better in the second half but Southampton [still] played better than us.

"Our first goal was a gift and the second was made easier because I saw the goalkeeper coming out of his goal.

"We were very lucky. I didn't see the confidence that I saw on the training ground earlier this week. We trained very well this week, and I did not see it on the match day - that is the most important time to show yourself.

"We didn't give a lot away in the second half, maybe four chances, but Southampton were the better team. We were the lucky team. But I think it is a good signal [the win]."
