Van Gaal: Arsenal better than Chelsea
Louis Van Gaal
The Dutchman says the Premier League champions are masters of â€œfinishing games offâ€, a skill that neither Manchester United nor the Gunners can yet lay claim to
Manchester Unitedboss Louis van Gaal believes Sundayâ€™s opponents, Arsenal, are a better team than Premier League champions Chelsea, but lack the Bluesâ€™ nous.
The Red Devils go head-to-head with the Gunners at Old Trafford looking to claim third place and avoid a Champions League play-off.
Van Gaal is anticipating a stern test against a side he believes to be the best in the Premier League, though the Dutchman says Arsene Wengerâ€™s men need to replicate the winning mentality that has propelled Chelsea to the title.
Asked about his own sideâ€™s improving psyche, Van Gaal rejected suggestions he had re-established Unitedâ€™s old swagger: â€œNo, because we are not champions.
â€œI think that (a winning mentality) is the quality of the champion.
â€œOf course, we have improved a lot but we still have to learn the way Chelsea can play and finish off games because that is the difference.
â€œI believe that Arsenal have a better team than Chelsea but they cannot finish like Chelsea. That comes from talent and experience from having people like John Terry and Gary Cahill.â€
Speaking of his own big-game experiences, Van Gaal continued: â€œWe were equal to Chelsea at home and much better there in spite of what Jose Mourinho was saying.
â€œAgainst Tottenham we were better both times. The result against Liverpool at home (3-0) was exaggerated but at Anfield we played fantastic football.
â€œThe difference is not the level of performance but how you finish off the game â€“ and Chelsea have done that the best.â€
