Van Gaal fears Man Utd title chances now over

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal fears their title hopes are over after their 1-1 draw at Aston Villa.

It left van Gaal's side third in the Barclays Premier League, seven points behind leaders Chelsea, and the boss felt draws at places like Villa Park would rule his side out of the title race.

"Yes, that's what I mean," he said.

"We dropped two points. We were the better team and that's frustrating when you're the better team and you don't win these kind of games. When you want to be a part of the title race you have to win these games.

"I have seen Manchester City in the first half against Crystal Palace and they could have been behind in the first five or 10 minutes. They struggled until half time but at the end it is 3-0, that's the difference."
