Louis van Gaal: We can still look up and finish second


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says his side can finish second in the Premier League after Sunday's away win at Liverpool.

It was Spain's Juan Mata who turned hero for the Red Devils by scoring a brace in a game that saw Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard being sent off 38 seconds after coming on as a substitute.

And the Dutchman says the three points allow United to keep their second place hopes alive.

"I'm very happy that we've won and that we've opened up a gap from the teams below us," van Gaal told MUTV.

"We can still look up and finish second.

"It is a significant win because we're five points ahead of Liverpool now but, if we'd lost, we would have been a point behind them. The win is very important.

"I liked the atmosphere, our fans and, of course, the start of the game.

"But the win is important not only for the fans, but for me too!

"I'm very pleased for the fans, we've beaten Liverpool twice [in the league] now, so I'm very happy. I'm most excited about beating Liverpool today, it's a very important moment."
