"We made errors in building up situations in the first phase, and when you make errors like that you give the match away," the former Dutch national team coach said.

Van Gaal is without a win in three games as the club's new boss but says building a new team "takes time".

He added that new British record signing Angel Di Maria should improve the team but will need time to "adapt to our culture, our philosophy".
