Daniel Drinkwater to get Leicester close to the Trophy.
The one all draw yesterday forced Leicester’s glory to a halt as they will be depending on the outcome of spurs game tonight to celebrate their trophy, whiles The Red Devils chances of finishing 4th this season has become slim.
“The start was unbelievably good, the first 25 minutes was fantastic to see, but then Leicester came more in the match. It is logical, they are the future champions, not for nothing,” Van Gaal told reporters.
“I have said to my players that I have seen one of the best matches of the season of my lineup I think, but it was not enough. The first goal is a fantastic goal but it is 1-1 and I have said we have to win every game so now already we are not closing the gap.
“It is dependent on City because Arsenal has won, so that is a big gap for three matches. You can do it but it shall be very difficult.”
