Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has criticized his forwards for not finding the net enough, as a result the Red Devils find themselves in the middle of a ‘rat-race’ for top four. These are the games they simply cannot afford to lose or drop points.

Bad news for Van Gaal is United will be without Dutch striker Robin van Persie for at least couple of weeks due to ankle injury.
