How can Louis Van Gaal launch Manchester United up the table?
Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United side were in a downward spiral, but a great performance against Chelsea on Sunday has shown signs that the squad is starting to gel and that the Dutchman is starting to form a coherent team.
Yet the Red Devils are still a staggering 10 points behind the leaders so what can van Gaal do in the short term to give his team an outside chance in the title race?
Suarez Clasico – Uruguayan paper rages at Messi for being selfish.

Tottenham Diarra – Former Chelsea and Arsenal star linked to Spurs.
5) Decide on his formation
The late addition of players like Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria threw all of van Gaal’s pre-season work out of the window, as he searched for a new shape to accommodate all his new talent.
The constant shifting of United’s shape is damaging their form and they must decide on a system and stick to it as soon as possible.
