Manchester: Manchester United is closing on EPL top-four, but Louis van Gaal wants his side to stay calm and take it "step by step".

Juan Mata's late free kick secured a 1-0 victory over Watford on Wednesday.
"We have to go step by step, I think," Van Gaal said when asked about his side's top-four hopes. "Of course we have now four victories in a row, it is fantastic, but we have a very small selection at the moment. We have the same problems as three weeks ago.
"Players are coming back but still I have to solve a problem every week in my line-up, so when players are coming back, they are not fit enough. I think we are doing great the last four matches but still we have to go step by step."
A trip to West Brom on Sunday now awaits as Van Gaal's men.
