Van Gaal Reveals Reason Behind Man Utd Success

Manchester United have jumped atop of the Premier League table and club boss Louis van Gaal has revealed the reason behind this success.

Of course, it's too early to judge the Red Devils, with only seven games having been played, and Van Gaal admitted his squad is still not at its peak.

"You need luck, but the balance of the team is better than last season," he told Sky Sports.

"Because of that, we need to win our games. We shall improve every week, yes. I don't see it every week, but see that we are better as a team and a selection.

"I rotate more now because I can. Last year, in my opinion, I didn't have the balance. I have let 20 or 25 players go. So it's a new team."

United sold Angel Di Maria, Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez, Jonny Evans, Rafael da Silva, Anders Lindegaard, Angelo Henriquez, Saidy Janko and Reece James during the latest transfer window.

Tom Cleverley and Ben Amos also departed on free transfers, while Adnan Januzaj was loaned out and Radamel Falcao returned to Monaco after his loan spell with the Red Devils had expired.

In Van Gaal's first season with the Old Trafford club, legendary winger Ryan Giggs retired, while Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Danny Welbeck, Shinji Kagawa, Alexander Buttner and Bebe left the club, before Darren Fletcher, Wilfried Zaha and Anderson moved on in the winter transfer window.
