Louis Van Gaal has refused to rule his Manchester United side out of topping the Premier League table when the season comes to a halt.

Van Gaal’s team trail Chelsea by eight points and have a game less to play.

Manchester United have hit their best form of the season in recent weeks, with wins against Tottenham and Liverpool. But, they still have tough fixtures against Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in their last eight games.

Speaking ahead of his side’s game against Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Saturday, he said: “It’s a rat race and Tottenham and Liverpool are still in it.”

“We have given them a blow, but we still have to play the top two teams (Chelsea and Manchester City) and a lot can happen.”

“But still we can win the title, mathematically, we can do that.”
