Van Gaal insists Manchester United can still win title

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal feels they can still win the Premier League title.

They are still 10 points behind Barclays Premier League leaders Leicester but Van Gaal claims the gap is not insurmountable.

He said: “I have the feeling that when we shall beat Chelsea – and that is not simple, that is very difficult, since Guus Hiddink has been there they don’t lose any more – I think our competition, our league is starting again. That is very important.

“The competition is not yet finished, not for Manchester United or the other teams.”

“We have the feeling, and that’s because we are winning twice in a row and with sparkling football – with goals and clean sheets, against opponents who were in great form.”

“Stoke City played Liverpool off the pitch in the Capital One Cup but they lost on penalties.”
