Louis van Gaal: A two goals' difference win, so I'm very pleased


Manchester United Louis van Gaal was delighted after his side's 3-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford.

Questions have been raised over the lack of goals from his strikers before the game but Robin van Persie and Falcao both responded to the call as they scored two of United's three goals.

"I'm always happy when we win and when we win with three goals," van Gaal told MUTV.

"Two goals' difference so I'm very pleased. We lost the away match and we have taken revenge of that.

"We have dominated the game, especially in the first half. In the second half, I wanted to kill the game but I have to admit my players did kill the game too much!

"They played backwards too much. I think you have to wait for the moment you can play forwards and then play it forwards.

"Nevertheless, we could have scored two goals more and they scored out of nothing.

"Our opponent has defended with two rows of four and also one of the strikers dropping into his own half. Then it's very difficult to continue with high-speed attacks so you have to be patient.

"Today, we were patient enough in the first half and I think we scored three fantastic goals. I'm happy as we have a great result.

"The results are good but I'm looking always to the process and what our next step is now in that process.

"We played today with four defenders and four midfielders and the balance in the team is also important. I've seen today a team that was playing like a team and then you can play with a system like this.

"It is more difficult in a 4-4-2 with a diamond and you have kept the balance. [There were] only two moments were we lacking in concentration and it cost us one goal."
