Manchester: Stung by a surprise opening-day defeat and with injuries taking their toll, the honeymoon period for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United is definitely over.
"Two weeks ago, I was the king of Manchester," Van Gaal said. "Now, I am the devil of Manchester."
After opening the English Premier League season with a 2-1 home loss to Swansea, the pressure is already on United and its manager ahead of a trip to Sunderland on Sunday. However, Van Gaal's list of absentees is growing, with Marcos Rojo - signed on Wednesday for 20 million euros ($27 million) from Sporting Lisbon - unavailable as the Argentina defender has yet to receive a work permit.
