Manchester United legend Paul Scholes wasn't too impressed with one man hanging around outside Old Trafford on Monday afternoon.

But should Van Gaal leave Old Trafford? United's recent run really hasn't been good enough, but the experienced manager may well be buoyed by his side's display against Chelsea.

The Red Devils, despite failing to secure all three points against the west London outfit, produced a strong performance and were extremely unlucky not to find the back of the net on a number of occasions throughout proceedings.

It's been well documented that the football on display at the Theatre of Dreams just isn't good enough, but perhaps Van Gaal could yet change the dynamic of his team over the coming weeks and months.
