Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes his side are in the mix to challenge for the Premier League title after their dramatic 2-1 win at Watford.

Troy Deeney’s 87th minute equaliser appeared to have handed Watford a point in a game United dominated for long periods, but the Hornets goal scorer then saw his fortunes transformed as he deflected Bastian Schweinsteiger’s cross into his own net to hand United a 2-1 win.

Memphis Depay had opened the scoring for United on his return to the first team, with Van Gaal oozing with praise for his team in this BT Sport interview.
