'Arrogant' Van Gaal: Manchester United can win Premier League title

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win the Premier League title despite trailing leaders Chelsea by 10 points after just eight games.

Two days after Jose Mourinho's side put in another solid display to beat Crystal Palace and maintain their unbeaten start to the season, United struggled to a 2-2 draw at West Bromwich Albion on Monday night that left Van Gaal "very disappointed."

And it will not get any easier for United, as they welcome Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday before a trip to neighbours and reigning champions Manchester City seven days later.

When asked if he felt United could catch Chelsea, Van Gaal said: "It is possible, but I am arrogant because I have done it a lot of times.

"I think Chelsea is another level and Manchester City also, so we have to see if we can beat them and after the matches I can say yes or no."

Despite the self-professed arrogance, Van Gaal realises the size of the task in hand -- even if he did have difficulty explaining it.

After the West Brom game, he said: "Now we have to play against Chelsea. In the Netherlands they say that is another cookie, I don't know if in English it is like that. It is another biscuit. You don't understand? It's another level."
