I know what you’re thinking, that I won’t write about it – because we were defeated – I call it a defeat because we were supposed to have beaten Leicester City on their own turf – but we didn’t.
According to the Red Devils, Man United could have won the Premier League match with Leicester – which ended in a Leicester City 1-1 Manchester United draw.
Van Gaal said: “I am not happy with a point because we were the better team. We dominated for 90 minutes but we have drawn. I have the feeling that we could have won this game. I’ve said to my players – this kind of match you have to win if you want to be champions at the end of the season”
Jamie Vardy’s opener nailed us and Van Gaal continued below:
“You can imagine that we have prepared [to stop] that because that is Leicester’s quality. We knew in advance that they are fantastic at counter-attacking. It was unbelievable that it could happen, especially after a corner kick. We gave the goal away, but it is also the quality of Vardy. We had sensible organisation for the corner kick, but still we conceded the goal so that’s a disappointment.”
We were supposed to have waltzed to the top of the table with ease, but we didn’t !!! and I’m mad as hell. We allowed Vardy to break the Premier League record of Ruud Van Nistelrooy (ex-red devil) by scoring in an 11th consecutive game in the 1-1 draw with Man United.
How can we dominate that match and still draw?
The livewire forward of Leicester City, Vardy, who has spent much of his career playing in the English lower leagues, rushed on to Christian Fuchs’ pass after 24 minutes to sweep the ball low beyond United Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea.
The tidy finish gave Leicester the lead and marked the 11th straight game Vardy has found the net, surpassing the record set by former United and Netherlands striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy in 2003.
Van Nistelrooy was quick to congratulate Vardy, posting on Twitter: “Well done @vardy7! You’re number one now and you deserved it. #11inarow.”
I’m still upset but what can I do but hope that my red team will continue to trudge on in this unpredictable Premier League.
Up Man U!
