|9/2||Manchester United are 9/2 with Bet365 to win the Premier League|
Mourinho is well known for playing mind-games with his rivals, while Van Gaal himself is an outspoken figure, but the 62-year-old does not expect any wars of words with the Portuguese or anyone else.
"I don't think I will fall out with him. [Mourinho] is my friend," he told reporters.
"I don't think [I will fall out with] all the other managers. I have full respect for all my colleagues.
"For me [mind games] are not so interesting. I have to manage my club. That is already difficult enough. I am not concerned with other clubs or other managers."
United and Chelsea will meet for the first time in 2014-15 at Old Trafford on October 26.
