Van Gaal praises 'patient' Man Utd

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says "patience" was key to his side's 2-0 victory over a "very defensive" West Brom.

Jesse Lingard scored his first goal for the club with a curling effort and Juan Mata secured victory from the penalty spot late on after Anthony Martial was fouled by Gareth McAuley, who was sent off.

The victory keeps Manchester United fourth in the Premier League, while West Brom are 12th.
