Louis van Gaal: I dream for Manchester City's place or Chelsea's place


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is ready to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City for the Premier League crown this season.

The Red Devils are eight points from leaders Chelsea and five from second-placed Manchester City but the Dutchman says his dream is to be at the very top of the English Premier League.

"I dream for Manchester City's place or Chelsea's place," van Gaal told MUTV.

"But now we have to live match for match and that is the most important thing. We have to beat Liverpool which is more important than thinking about City or Chelsea."

United host Liverpool this weekend, a side that has disappointed in the first half of the season.

But the Dutchman, whose side also struggled in the first part of the season, says nothing should come as a surprise in English football.

"What is a surprise in England? Anything can happen," added van Gaal.

"Every match in the Premier League is a difficult match. I still think Liverpool can fight for the top four places and still I have belief in that team because they have fantastic players but they also have a lot of injuries which is not so easy to manage."
