Van Gaal Looks Forward To FA Cup Clash With Arsenal

Manchester United Manager, Louis Van Gaal, is savouring Monday night’s FA Cup tie against Arsenal and feels the quarter-final clash could have a substantial effect on the race for the big four in the Barclays Premier League.

The United boss senses an opportunity to take a big step towards retaining his record of winning a trophy in his first season with every club he’s managed.

The former Netherlands boss also appreciates that a cup victory over United’s old rivals at Old Trafford could have a positive psychological effect in the league as the battle for Champions League places hots up.

“It’s a game between two teams of 11 players,” Van Gaal said, speaking to his pre-match press conference.

“United and Arsenal are placed third and fourth in the league, so it’s almost like a final, I think.

“We have the support of our fans but Arsenal shall bring a lot of fans too. Also, Arsenal and United are now in third and fourth place, so it is a big event with two good teams. I hope we can give a fantastic match for the fans.

“I think if we beat them it is a big blow for them, but if they beat us it is a big blow for us. It is very important game, not only for the FA Cup but also for the rat race,” van Gaal said.
