Van Gaal declares Man Utd going for Premier League title

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says they're going for the title this season.

Sitting third in the table within touching distance of Manchester City and Chelsea, he hasn't given up hope of finishing the season as a Premier League champion.

Van Gaal said: "The best achievement is to be champions because our goal is still to be champions at the end of the season, that's also the best result.

"We are looking in a football world where No.1 is the most important thing.

"Our goal is to be first. But it's not always so easy, you can see that.

"That's why the board have said that our goal is within the first four places. But with my players and all the staff, we are trying to achieve more than they expect from us."
