Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal insists his side can still win the Premier League title despite their poor start to the campaign.

The Red Devils, 17.00 to lift the trophy, have yet to win a game this season and have picked up just two points so far.

Van Gaal added the likes of Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Marcus Rojo and Daley Blind to his squad in the last few weeks of the window, as he tries to rapidly improve their fortunes.

United finished seventh last term under David Moyes but Van Gaal is still confident of changing their fortunes around.

His side take on Queens Park Rangers on Sunday at Old Trafford and the Dutchman is confident they can mount a title charge.

“Yes, it’s always possible because we still have to play a lot of matches,” he said. “We are not that far behind.”

While Van Gaal is confident of an upturn in form, he does have a number of injury doubts.

Phil Jones and Ashley Young will miss the clash against QPR and Van Gaal admits the injuries are a worry.

He said: “Now, we have a lot of injuries so I’m evaluating why; I’ve changed my preparation scheme because of that, for example, and I’ve also changed what we have to do after the match. I have changed the schedule of times.

“I have always said I am not only evaluating the players but I am also evaluating myself and my staff.”
