Louis van Gaal gives update on new signings after disappointing draw against Newcastle United


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says the goals will come after fans took to Twitter to ask for a new striker after Saturday's disappointing draw against Newcastle United.

The draw highlighted the desperate need for the Dutchman to strengthen his attack as Wayne Rooney again struggled at the head of the attack.

Mexico's Javier Hernandez went close in the second half with the Dutchman also blaming luck for the lack of goals against the Magpies.

"I think we can be satisfied about the performance but not about the result because we don't reward ourselves," van Gaal told MUTV and BT Sport.

"I think we have created a lot of chances and we were unlucky.

"[But] it's also luck, I think it was a great dribble by Chicharito after getting the ball. I think you also need luck in football and it's not only what you say about quality.

"I think the quality in the third phase in the crossing positions, we didn't do so good, we didn't make the right choices. Also we can do better with the speed of the ball and, of course, we had open chances, alone with the goalkeeper, and we have to score there normally.

"But I think we were very unlucky. But we played fantastic as a team and we have fought until the end and that's fantastic to see. I like this type of game, only the result was bad.

"[The midfield?] I've said already in advance that he [Bastian] should play 60 minutes. In the other matches, Michael Carrick played 60 minutes and now it was the other way around.

"I need to build up both. Michael Carrick last year was injured for a lot of matches and now he's not and that's a big benefit for the team. It's the same for Bastian.

"[If the result changes my thinking on new signings?] No, that I have said already because, as a fan, you have to see how we have played this match.

"The performance was good and the fans were always behind the players. It was a fantastic match to watch but we were unlucky.

"We have to score our chances and, in the next match, we shall score maybe a goal out of three chances and that is better. The performance today was better though."
