Louis van Gaal: Why the win against Everton is a "stolen victory"


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was not happy with his side's performance despite edging past Everton on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils battled to a 1-0 win victory as they leapfrogged West Ham United in fifth place.

But according to the Dutchman his players were not fresh after the international break and were lucky to take all three points against Roberto Martinez's men.

"It was more or less a stolen victory," van Gaal told Sky Sports.

"We didn't play so well, it looked like we were not fresh. You never how the players will come back from the international break. We were today the lucky team.

"They played a little bit different than we expected. We want to give entertainment for the fans, but the fans were entertained today because of the tension.

"If we lose today, the victory against Manchester City is worthless. Now we are still in the race. We have a very important game against Tottenham.

"I said before the game we have to give a victory to Sir Bobby Charlton. He was very pleased in the dressing room.

"Daley Blind has played every match this season and he is at the end of his strengths. I shall give him two days off."
