Louis van Gaal offers to share bottle of wine with Jose Mourinho should Chelsea help Man United’s Champions League hopes

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has admitted he will be cheering on newly-crowned  Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea when they face Liverpool on Sunday afternoon in a fixture that could all but seal United’s qualification for the Champions League.

A win for the Blues at Stamford Bridge would guarantee United a place in the top four after they moved seven points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool in the table after a hard fought a 2-1 win over a dogged Crystal Palace side on Saturday evening at Selhurst Park.

A draw in West London would cut the gap down to six points but with the Red Devils boasting a superior goal difference to their North-West rivals it would take a highly unlikely set of events for them not to finish in the top-four come the end of the season.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game against the Eagles, van Gaal said there will be a glass of wine waiting for the Chelsea boss if they get the job done against Liverpool:

“There is always a bottle of wine for Jose Mourinho.” he claimed

“But it is for us easy now to sit down and drink a beautiful glass of wine and to see how Chelsea shall beat Liverpool.” The Dutchman added.
