Two wins, three draws and a run without tasting any defeat saw English giants Manchester United give a decent account of themselves during a hectic festival period. An away win against League One side Yeovil Town, in the third round FA Cup fixture capped off United's festive schedule which manager Louis van Gaal will be happy with.
Louis van Gaal has endured the worst possible start for Manchester United in its 28-year history, as the English giants lie at a dismal 10th position after 10 games this season. Sadly, after a hefty summer signing spree, United's defensive woes have rocked van Gaal's start at the club.
After a disastrous first season in the post Ferguson era, Manchester United are looking to commence the rebuilding process at Old Trafford without any delay. The club moved swiftly to anoint Louis van Gaal (LvG) as replacement for David Moyes, who had been sacked unceremoniously after just 10 months at the helm.

They have been the best outfit in England this season, so far. After the end of round 15, Arsenal are leading the table with 35 points, five more from Liverpool and Chelsea, who are separated on goal difference. Replicating their domestic form, Gunners are sitting atop in their Champions League group, with 12 points from four wins and a defeat.
Liverpool slumped to yet another defeat as Manchester United registered their 4th victory, the third after being a goal down. 2-1 was the final score at Anfield. Robin van Persie scored the winner courtesy a penalty after Steven Gerrard had put the hosts in front and Rafael’s strike had brought back parity.
