Louis van Gaal: 'I want to get one over on Manchester United'

Louis van Gaal

Manchester City have won an English record 16 games in a row.

He said: "Probably but we will take each game as it comes".

Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville pointed out that seven of United's starting 11 in the 2-1 win over West Brom were Ferguson signings (or players who were already at the club). This season will be seen as a loss should the team fail to bring any new hardware to Old Trafford.

While the 66-year-old admitted he is unlikely to return to coaching, he insisted he would make an exception for a Premier League club, as it would give the chance to "get one over" his former club.

"I think any other season we would be top with the points we have, so as long as we keep winning we will see where we are".

"The context is one game - we want to win, we try to win, we are happy to win", he told reporters after the match.


"For us, without [Paul] Pogba, without [Marouane] Fellaini, without Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] - three important guys in the defensive aerial game - we knew that they had an advantage". "They've signed eight defenders in the last four or five years and not one of them is in the team today. Everyone in the Premier League especially the ones in more accumulation of cups, European cups, they are at risk".

"We're doing very well on the whole at the moment". It's another three points. "The intensity in the first half maybe we didn't have in the second half".

Lukaku started in stunningly good form, scoring 11 goals in his first 10 games for the club, but a spell of poor goalscoring form followed.

"Obviously playing further forward you are going to get more goals and create chances so to play there with Romelu we are getting that understanding now and chipping in together".

"I played there when I was younger and, when I got into the reserves, I played more on the left or the right for my development, but eventually moved inside again".

"Playing centrally I think you get on the ball a lot more and you can make things happen more and you can obviously play closer to the main striker and get the bits off him".
