Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal under pressure ahead of crunch QPR clash

Louis van GaalThe Premier League returns to the forefront of our football consciousness this weekend following a two week absence, and come Sunday afternoon all the attention will be on Manchester United as Louis van Gaal attempts to finally win his first match in charge. The Red Devils face top-flight new boys QPR in a game they will be expected to win, and thus kick-start what has been a rotten crusade so far.

United have failed to make the most of a favourable start, which has seen the club  scrape together just two points from their opening three games against Swansea, Sunderland and Burnley, while they were also humiliated 4-0 by MK Dons in the Capital One Cup. As a result Van Gaal’s underperformers currently sit 14th in the table, and are already seven points adrift off league leaders Chelsea.

The summer's transfer window saw United dramatically alter their home grown policy in favour of replicating Real Madrid and storming down the Galacticos route. Van Gaal splashed out a staggering £160million on the likes of Angel Di Maria, Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind, while they also secured the shock loan signing of Radamel Falcao, who will reportedly be paid a whopping £265,000-a-week.

United, who have scored just twice this season and haven't won a competitive game since May, will now look to unleash their stunning array of talent against the R's, who haven’t beaten United in 22 years. A United loss is almost too unbearable to think about for Van Gaal, whose current odds of 33/1 (Bet Victor) will be severely slashed in the Premier League Sack Race.
