Following another 0-0 draw, Louis van Gaal has insisted Manchester United did play attacking football against West Ham, we just weren’t able to score.
Over the 90 minutes, United had over 20 attempts on goal, yet only one of those was on target.
I think that we played a very good match, it’s only we have to score. You must score out of the kind of chances we created. You need to score, otherwise you cannot win, and it is very frustrating, also for the players because they want to score. We have to finish better than we did today.
You can train every day on shooting at the goal and you have to know that we are doing that. We put players in the position to score but you need composure and luck to score. The most important thing is that we are creating and we are dominant. Today, we were dominant and attacking, we were creating chances – only we forgot to score.
Of course it’s frustrating [that rivals dropped points] but I look first at my own team – that’s the most important thing.
