Man United put in a much better performance against the Premier League champions but the result meant their winless streak extended to eight games in all competitions.
Following the game, some fans chanted ‘Louis van Gaal’s red and white army’ to the manager, prompting him to respond “You are the only one”:

It is good to see van Gaal not getting too downbeat with United’s situation but it is doubtful that officials behind the scenes at the club will be so forgiving.
Van Gaal would be lucky to survive an eight game winless streak at any other top club in the world and it is likely that his future will be under serious consideration at Old Trafford.
While van Gaal’s character is endearing, results haven’t been good enough considering the amount of money he has spent since taking over and you get the sense that he will be let go sooner rather than later.
