BBC Sport - Louis van Gaal says Man Utd in 'rat race' for top-four finish

Top-four fight a rat race - Van Gaal

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says his side are involved in a "rat race" involving five clubs to finish in the top four.

Defeat at Swansea dropped United into fourth, with four points separating Arsenal in third and Tottenham in seventh.

Van Gaal, whose side host Sunderland on Saturday, says it would be a big disappointment if they do not qualify for the Champions League.
