Louis van Gaal: We are still near the top of the league and the gap is less


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was full of praise for his players after an unconvincing 2-1 win against Swansea City.

The Red Devils ended a run of eight games without a win as they battled past the Swans.

And the Dutchman says United can still dream about winning the title this season.

"I think we played a very risky system against Swansea because they had a shape with four midfielders in a diamond," van Gaal told the BBC.

"We played with three defenders but we did very well and created a lot of chances. We didn't score, though, and that's our problem. When we scored, there was not a problem any more. We scored two beautiful goals.

"I am very happy for the players because they had to play under big pressure and now we have won. We are still near the top of the league and the gap is less.

"So that's football. That's a season. A season takes eight months or something like that and not one month.

"I hope this is a fantastic starting point for us in the New Year and we can continue against Sheffield United."
