Manchester United conceded three goals in a span of just six minutes at White Heart Lane, resulting in a 3-0 loss against Tottenham.
The Red Devils are risking to miss out on a spot in next year’s Champions League, as Manchester City are four points ahead of them in the standings. Meanwhile, United are just one point ahead of West Ham and could therefore miss the Europa League as well.
After Sunday’s defeat, coach Louis Van Gaal was all but happy. When asked if he could have been better off coaching the Spurs, the Dutchman had some harsh words for Tottenham and the journalist in question.

There has been much speculation about Van Gaal’s future at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho has been dubbed his successor for months. However, the Portuguese recently denied there has been any form of agreement between him and United, while Van Gaal has expressed his desire to stay on as the club’s coach until his contract runs out in 2017.
