Man Utd boss pleased with 2-0 win over Yeovil.


Louis van Gaal was pleased to see his side go through to the FA Cup fourth round after a stuttering performance against Yeovil Town.

The Red Devils managed to secure a 2-0 win over Gary Johnson's side who were really impressive and made the Reds work really hard to get the win.

Ander Herrera broke the deadlock in the 64th minute and £57m pound man - Angel di Maria - who came off the bench in the second-half, increased the deficit with a cool finish after a lovely pass by United captain Wayne Rooney found the Argentine winger.

"It's always difficult to play against such teams," the United boss told BT Sport. "They gave us not so much time and every ball came under pressure. I have lot of respect for the players and coach of Yeovil Town - it was not so easy for us.

"In the second half, we had a little bit more time and space, we played better and were more patient," the boss added. "We kept the ball better also and, because of that, we could score the winning goal.

"We dominated the game, more so in the second half. They had one chance from a set-piece, but we were organised and Angel Di Maria cleared it away. It's just simple organisation. I think they maybe had one more chance after a mistake from one of my players, but that's it."

Manchester United face Southampton next on Sunday [11th of January] looking to improve their all-round display after taking only two points in two games in the Premier League.
