David Moyes v Louis van Gaal head-to-head

Louis van Gaal and Manchester United were booed off the Old Trafford pitch after a 1-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday.

It was another low in a campaign littered with disappointments for the Red Devils, and manager Van Gaal's grip on his job again comes into focus.

Here is a look at how the records of Van Gaal and his predecessor David Moyes compare, looking at United after 23 Premier League games of this season and Moyes' 2013/14 campaign at the same stage.

United had three more points after 23 games under Moyes' leadership, and he was sacked before the end of the season.
