Louis van Gaal on the win and a possible Top Four finish for Manchester United


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was pleased after his side added three more points to keep their Top Four finish hopes alive.

The Red Devils started a series of tough games on Wednesday night that will see them face Everton in the FA Cup, Premier League leaders Leicester City and Norwich City and West Ham United away from home.

But the Dutchman is convinced that all objectives can be reached in the last part of the season.

"I was very happy with the performance and I think it was a four or five to zero game," van Gaal said.

"We should have finished it much earlier and scored much more goals. We created a lot of chances and we did not give any chances away – one, maybe, in the first half for Adebayor.

"Yes it helps of course [to score early] and also such a goal [for the second]. I was very happy for Matteo [Darmian], two times he was involved in the goals and I have seen it already in the training session.

"He was the top scorer of the day on Monday and he did it again in the match. He shot with his left and right foot, and now he shot for his goal with his left foot.

"Of course we are in the race [to finish in the Top Four] and we are two points behind City and Arsenal [who are one point ahead of United] have to play tomorrow [Thursday] against West Bromwich Albion.

"It is not an easy opponent because they will defend, probably, and it is always difficult. You have seen Arsenal against Crystal Palace – it is always difficult."
