  • Van Gaal rues Man United's five-minute lapse

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal blamed a five-minute lapse in concentration for his side's 2-1 defeat at Swansea City in the Premier League on Sunday. Protecting an unbeaten record, United took a 48th-minute lead through Juan Mata at the Liberty Stadium, only for goals in quick succession from Andre Ayew and Bafetimbi Gomis to give Swansea a third successive win over their opponents. Swansea's goals arrived shortly after Garry Monk had switched his formation to a 4-4-2 with a midfield diamond, moving Ayew up front alongside Gomis, and Van Gaal said his players had not reacted to it quickly enough.
