Louis van Gaal bemoans poor finishing against West Bromwich Albion

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes his side need to improve their finishing following a third loss in a row against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Man United were poor against West Brom and can have no complaints with the 1-0 defeat.

Van Gaal’s side were also beaten by Chelsea and Everton in recent weeks, leaving their top four spot in the Premier League far from certain.

The 63-year-old conceded United weren’t good enough against the Baggies and lamented their poor finishing.

Speaking about the game, van Gaal said: ”We knew in advance that they’d park the bus, we have to deal with that.

“In the second half we had enough chances – you have to finish. It’s now the third match (they have lost in a row). We have to take care of that. It’s very difficult.”

Fans were hoping that last weekend’s disappointing defeat at Goodison Park was a blip but United continued their poor form against West Brom.

Consistency has eluded United all season long and they have dipped at what is a crucial point of the season. With a tricky trip to Crystal Palace next before a clash against Arsenal, United will need to be much better to secure Champions League football.
