Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has declared that while the 10 point gap between them and Chelsea is a lot, he has the experience to lead the club to catching up with them, as reported by the Daily Star.
The Dutch manager saw the Red Devils stumble to a 2-2 draw against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League last night, with Daley Blind rescuing a point in the last ten minutes for his side.
Van Gaal’s troops now face a difficult Chelsea challenge on Sunday, with Jose Mourinho’s side having been undefeated since the start of the season.
In fact, only one side has managed to take any points from the Blues, with Manchester City drawing with them prior to the international break.
However, Van Gaal believes the 10 point gap can be made up.
He has said that he’s done it before, and would not be surprised if he led another side to a similar success.
Van Gaal said: “Ten points is a lot. It’s possible to do it, but it will be difficult. If I say we can do it then I am arrogant, but I have done it a lot of times before.
“Chelsea and City are another level, with no disrespect to West Brom. Are we far away? We have to see if we can beat them and after those matches I can tell you ‘yes’ or ‘no’.”
