Van Gaal code proving difficult to break for Manchester United players

ESPN FC's Craig Burley thinks this poor display from the Red Devils is a sign that tough times are on the way.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says questions over his formations are misplaced, and playing 4-4-2 fails to give his team the right balance.
Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says it is vital for the club to win the FA Cup, which represents their best chance of silverware this season.

When Louis van Gaal receives questions from the media, he usually greets them with a pause, perhaps a nod of acknowledgement, and for testing queries a simple "yes," before delivering his answer in a schoolmasterly but occasionally wild-eyed fashion.

Van Gaal, who is deaf in one ear according to his biographer Hugo Borst, has not taken extra English lessons since arriving at Manchester United. His self-assurance is such that he believes he does not need to, yet cracking "the Van Gaal code" is proving...

Angel Di Maria is struggling at Manchester United, and here's why

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reckons Manchester United are struggling under Louis van Gaal.

What has happened to Angel Di Maria while at Manchester United? He arrived at Old Trafford for the sum of almost 60 million pounds, a British transfer record, and in excellent form.

Playing his early games at a thrilling tempo, he was central to everything exciting that United did. His peak in those early days came in the first half against Leicester, a game that his team would remarkably go on to lose 5-3, but his sumptuous lob to make it 2-0 gives fans a good memory from an otherwise terrible...

Louis van Gaal's Manchester United not the same since Leicester loss

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reckons Manchester United are facing troubled times following their abject 0-0 draw away at League Two Cambridge.

Leicester's Jamie Vardy has a lot to answer for. In September, Angel Di Maria put Manchester United ahead 2-0 with a stunning lob and all looked right with the world.

Fast-forward an hour later and Vardy, a thorn in United's side that day but who has done nothing since, put Leicester ahead 5-3 and Louis van Gaal has not been the same since.

Prior to the Leicester debacle, Van Gaal's new signings Di Maria and Ander Herrera scored in a 4-0 thumping over QPR while Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo impressed...

A history of the Premier League's genuinely title-deciding showdowns

ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes controlling David Silva is the key for Chelsea to beat Man City on Saturday in their big Premier League clash.

Jose Mourinho may be unwilling to talk about it, having cancelled his pregame news conference on account of the violent conduct charge for Diego Costa, but it's not like Chelsea-Manchester City will be lacking in build-up this weekend. As tends to be the case with these modern fixtures, it has already been described as the season's key match, and a potentially defining meeting for the Premier League title.

There's little doubt that such showdowns can involve a lot of drama, and reveal plenty about...
