Frustrated Louis van Gaal says Manchester United "could have scored six" against Newcastle United


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was bitterly disappointed after his side failed to take all three points from last night's game against Newcastle United.

The Red Devils threw away a 0-2 and 2-3 lead as they continue to struggle in their quest to finish in the Top Four.

And the Dutchman believes his side is to blame for the missed opportunity.

"We threw it away," van Gaal said.

"You have to finish the game much earlier. The referee gave a penalty and I think it was a duel - I have seen the video and you can see Mitrovic was pushing the head of Smalling.

"When you both do that you cannot decide which is worse, I think, but the referee did not lose our game. We lost it by ourselves.

"[And] we were unlucky, when you see the penalty for the second goal and when you see the third goal. When the ball is going where he [Paul Dummett] shot then it is in the hands of De Gea.

"It clipped off Smalling and that took it past. It was unlucky. Before that we were running behind and you have to push forward, you have to push the ball under pressure and we didn't do that. Then you get these kinds of things.

"We could have scored six goals here, I think, there were big possibilities so when you then lose two points then that is very sad. Also, everybody knows it is our own fault. It was not the referee or the opponent. We did it ourselves."

"It is a very big game for Manchester United [the next one] but also for Liverpool. Now, I am still with my mind on this game and that is not such a happy ending."
