Where Next for Louis Van Gaal's Manchester United?

But where next for Manchester United? The side are struggling to make progress under their Dutch boss, Van Gaal, and fans have grown restless and impatient in recent weeks after inconsistent performances have dented their league campaign this year.

Manchester City are all set to face-off Manchester United at the Etihad stadium this Sunday. Two teams known to be stellar individually and intense rivals, meet yet again, but have their performances lived upto expectations this season?

Recent injuries to Manchester United’s captain and their star keeper have undoubtedly come as a big blow to Louis Van Gaal and his team.
