Louis van Gaal admits that the Manchester United players’ confidence is rising with each win, but he is still looking for the ‘perfect game’.

The Red Devils are on a run of six back-to-back wins, which has allowed them to rise up to third in the Premier League table.

Some are even tipping Manchester United to land a credible title charge in the second half of the season, an idea that seemed farfetched after they collected just 13 points from their first 10 fixtures.


Van Gaal acknowledges that the run of victories has surely lifted the gloom surrounding Old Trafford after the end of last season and his players are much more confident.


But the Dutchman also feels that they need to improve their performances in the second half of the season to remain consistent over the course of the whole campaign.

"When you win six times in a row the confidence is rising”, the Dutchman said in a press conference.

“But I’m still looking for a game that is more close to the perfect game than we have given until now.

"For me, the performance is very important. When you perform well, you win more and that’s what I want to show to the fans. The players want to show that.

“The guarantee of wins is much bigger when we perform better."
