Louis van Gaal delighted after top-class performance against Stoke City


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was a happy man after his side's 3-0 win at home against Stoke City.

It was a much-needed for the Red Devils who kept their Top Four hopes alive.

And the Dutchman was delighted after his side scored their first first-half goals in 12 home games.

"It was a great first half, we scored fantastic goals and we created more chances above that," van Gaal told Sky Sports.

"In the second we controlled the game, scored the third goal. It was very good.

"I think in 2016 we have only lost against Southampton in the last minute. We have more confidence maybe.

"I cannot say we now have more confidence because we lost to Southampton at home and that can never be. At home you have to win but I hope it gives us motivation to continue because in Derby we played very well also.

"Three goals eh? In a row!"
