The National’s Sport cover for the Tuesday, December 2 issue, featuring Jonathan Wilson’s analysis of the job done so far by Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

United are fourth in the Premier League so far this season under Van Gaal’s stewardship, coming off their disaster 2013/14 campaign under David Moyes.

Wilson writes that it is Van Gaal’s flexibility with formations and dexterous touch amid a slew of injuries that have allowed him to keep Manchester United in a strong position where his predecessor floundered.

“As the ‘philosophy’ that Van Gaal speaks of so often takes hold, his team is looking more and more solid.

“`yhe signs are that the world is beginning to conform to Van Gaal’s will.”
