- From the section Football
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says the contest for a top-four place is still a "rat race" despite a 3-1 win over Aston Villa giving his side an eight-point advantage over fifth-placed Liverpool.
Ander Herrera and Wayne Rooney gave United a two-goal lead before Villa's Christian Benteke pulled one back with a low strike. Herrera sealed the victory with a side-footed finish in injury time.
The Red Devils have won 13 of their past 15 Premier League home games.
