Manchester United slumped to their third 0-0 draw in a row, in yet another lifeless performance under the watchful eye of Louis van Gaal. The Dutchman seems unwilling to change United’s tactics as he still looks to continue his possession-based football.
From the get-go United were on the back foot and if any side looked like winning the game it was going to be Crystal Palace. The style of football has been extremely dull to watch for the most part this season, and the manager must be feeling under increasing pressure.
As you’d expect, Manchester United fans took to Twitter to express their unhappiness with the managers infamous philosophy, and they certainly weren’t happy after another abysmal display.
Louis van Gaal was summed up today. He relies so heavily on creating one good chance and making sure it was scored.

Louis Van Gaal keeps talking about taking chances. I think you need to create before you can score. Creation doesn't exist in this case

Louis Van Gaal's stubbornness to alter his Philosophy will eventually be his downfall, that or he retires… #MUFC

If Louis Van Gaal was called David Moyes he'd be expected to be sacked before Mourinho even. Not seen such a negative manager in the PL.

Louis Van Gaal = David Moyes. Only with more fame. The way they play their football are the same: boring.
