Van Persie confident Van Gaal's United will click

The Dutchman insists his side's form will begin to improve but admits his teammates were "too sloppy" during United's 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

Robin van Persie insists it’s “just a matter of time” before Manchester United come good under new boss Louis van Gaal.

The Red Devils are still without a win in the Premier League under the highly rated Dutch coach, with last weekend's 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea being followed up with a 1-1 draw at Sunderland on Sunday.

Juan Mata opened the scoring at the Stadium of Light but United struggled to create any more clear-cut chances and was ultimately forced to settle for a draw after Jack Rodwell’s equalizer.

“Everyone has faith and believes in this club and our players because we have great players because it’s just a matter of time until the points come in,” Van Persie told Sky Sports. “We lost two points [against Sunderland]. Clearly we came here to win. If you come in front after 15 minutes or so, we should have kept the score for longer. It’s always harsh to concede from a corner.

“In ball possession we were a bit too sloppy, lost too many balls, making it hard for ourselves.”
