Reports are out claiming that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal refused to be down after their 1-0 defeat at Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho’s side moved 10 points clear at the top of the table after Eden Hazard’s goal was enough to beat United.
“I am very disappointed with the result, but I am pleased with the performance,” van Gaal said.
“As a team we were fantastic today – we played Chelsea off the pitch.
“We were not effective today, because we created a lot of chances in spite of the defensive organisation of Chelsea – three in the first half to their zero. In the second half, we created eight chances and Chelsea three, so that’s unbelievably good.
“We were the dominant team on the pitch but lost and, in football, the result is everything. I’ve told the boys in the dressing room that every week we are making an improvement. When you see our playing style, you can be very happy. That’s the most important thing.”
