Louis van Gaal on a frustrating and an unlucky draw and the title race


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was bitterly disappointed after his side could only manage a draw away at Chelsea.

The Red Devils came very close to causing a major upset at Stamford Bridge but Diego Costa's late goal means they fail to move closer to the Top Four.

And the Dutchman was visibly frustrated at the end of the game.

"Deep frustration," van Gaal told Sky Sports.

"We were the better team. Again. And we didn't win. We had the better chances but we didn't win.

"We played a superb game until the last quarter. Then we did not keep the ball in the way I think we have to. Then, we were unlucky and we get a goal against us. It is unbelievable. We don't reward ourselves.

"This is also because Chelsea is pushing with long balls and more aggression but nevertheless you have to keep the ball and be composed when you defend; you are not kicking the ball way without any meaning.

"Also we could have scored again after the first goal but you don't reward yourselves. When you play such a game against a team like Chelsea, you have to reward yourself.

"When your aim is to be third or second or first then you need to win because the gap is already big. The gap is now bigger than before so that's not good.

"I cannot say I am disappointed about the performance, I am disappointed in the result. It is a big difference.

"When you want to be in the top three, which is our aim, you have to win these kind of games. The gap is growing and growing and that is not good. When you see this match you can only say we deserved to win, but we didn't win and it is happening a lot of times.

"We cannot afford it [lapses in concentration]."
