However, Man United have a tough October ahead of them, with trips to Arsenal and Everton either side of the worldwide break.
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal fears the Premier League could lose a place in the Champions League. “We’ve been playing together more time than last season, so it’s normal we’re playing good football and that’s what we want to do this season – improve again“.

Van Gaal said his team knew the earlier result from White Hart Lane, where Tottenham Hotspur demolished City 4-1, before they walked out on to the pitch.
Van Gaal insisted he does not care who scores United’s goals and picked out Martial’s performance for praise.
Schweinsteiger – who netted Bayern’s goal in that game – remembers the atmosphere vividly and claims the current Premier League leaders are good enough to challenge on the continent this term, provided the backing from the fans remains strong.
“I have said it before and six weeks ago and the same answers”.
“I was very happy with the (Depay) goal in added time because (Sunderland) punished themselves”.
“Van Gaal is a very strict coach”, he told Telefoot.
Mata himself has been in fine form this season and leads his teammates as not only United’s top scorer with three goals but also as the team’s most creative player, as he has made 14 chances this term. “Borini as a striker had problems keeping the ball, that’s why I brought on [Steven] Fletcher at half-time”. “He’s not only a goalscorer, he can create goals, so I am very happy with him“.
Juan Mata has been involved in 11 Premier League goals in 2015; four more than any other Man Utd player. I went home feeling happy because the team approached the game with the maximum respect for the opponent despite them not being in the Premier League, and from the first minute we were determined to win.
