Louis van Gaal bemoans Manchester United injury list

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says he will be without nine first-team players for the visit of Everton to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Dutchman has eight players injured and captain Wayne Rooney suspended for the midday kick-off, but is keen to avenge United's two league defeats by the Toffees last season.

Van Gaal says Everton "play football like I want to play football" and expects a very interesting game, with both sides wanting to dominate possession.
