LONDON -- A trio of observations on Sunday's 0-0 draw between Tottenham and Manchester United in the Premier League:
1. Unchanged United can't take advantage
Louis van Gaal faced down the Christmas pile-up and fell just short. Injuries have meant Van Gaal has not exactly had a full squad at his disposal over the festive period, but the selection of an unchanged side for this midday kickoff, just 45 hours after Manchester United had kicked off at home to Newcastle, felt like bravery -- bravado, even.
