“Every week I shall compare every player with his competitor, so it is fantastic what he is doing”
Louis van Gaal
The Dutchman said: “I have said in the dressing room after the match that it was very important to win – otherwise the victory against Manchester City was worthless.
“We now keep in touch with City, one point behind. We keep in touch with Arsenal, five points behind.
“We have to play Tottenham, not an easy match but normally we are playing very well against the top teams. If we continue like that I am very happy.
“I have already said in many press conferences that Anthony Martial, with his age, is exceptional.
“He has almost played in every match and to play every match then you have to be very strong and consistent.
“Every week I shall compare every player with his competitor, so it is fantastic what he is doing.”
