Manchester United came out in a dominating fashion against Everton over the weekend sealing a 3-0 victory.
Wayne Rooney netted his first away league goal since November 2014, ending a run of 1550 minutes without a goal. This brings his account to 2 for the 2015 season, and helps him to maintain relevance at Manchester United.
Van Gaal showed some true managerial colors in United’s post-game press conference though stating,
“I am very proud of them. Fantastic. All the credit goes to the players. You need also a little bit of luck and the goals were fantastic but they were at good moments. It is only one match, and Arsenal was only one match. We don’t have to exaggerate. We have to be more consistent.”
The seasoned manager’s aversion to the media hype machine that is EPL coverage is a smart move because if the men at Old Trafford start listening to all the news they may just spoil their edge.
Van Gaal isn’t dwelling on United’s victory, which they certainly needed and earned, because it’s no secret who is next on the schedule: Manchester City.
The Citizens appear to be firing on all cylinders again as they’ve netted 11 goals in their last two EPL matches. What’s even more shocking about their most recent 5-1 decimation of Bournemouth is that they were without their 2015 goal machine Sergio Aguero.
This weekend’s match-up should prove to be a thrilling clash between two titans of the English Premier League. United currently sits in third while Manchester City loom over the top of the league in first. The victor will most likely become one of the favorites to win the league outright.
