Manchester: Man United manager Louis van Gaal has warned his players a repeat of their display against Arsenal will be unacceptable if they want to be EPL title challengers.

United suffered a 0-3 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last time out. The Red Devils return to action after the international break today with a clash against Everton at Goodison Park. Van Gaal admitted it’s been a difficult fortnight for him following a disappointing result and has demanded his players start acting like a team near the top of the table.

"It’s been an awful two weeks. Before the last international break in September we against to Swansea. To be champion, you have to behave like a champion and improve," he said.
