Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal reveals how he would celebrate a win in the derby


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will drink a "very big glass of wine" if his side beat Manchester City on Sunday.

The Red Devils are two points behind leaders City with Arsenal also chasing the leadership in the Premier League.

And although he had one day less to work with his players, the Dutchman is in a positive mood ahead of the game.

"I think for the fans it's very emotional," van Gaal told reporters.

"I live in a little village and it's the talk of the town there.

"But for me it's not an issue because I have to work more rationally and not emotionally. We have to prepare our game; we have one day less, so it is more difficult.

"We have to do the meetings in a shorter time. It is also more difficult for the players, but we have to do that. That is what we are doing and we hope that we can beat Manchester City.

"In Manchester people are talking of the match. I can imagine that because Manchester City have a lot of fans, but Manchester United has more fans so it shall be a battle.

"I don't think it is a big issue for us that Manchester City have started well, because you can expect that from a club like City. It's not only a derby, but a match that can see who can be ready to go top of the table.

"Last year we had a very good derby, of course, a 4-2 win, and that is very important for the fans. I hope we can do that again but it is always difficult.

"[If United win] I shall take a very big glass of wine and toast our victory."
