With David De Gea and Wayne Rooney out injured and over a dozen first team players joining them on the sidelines, does Louis Van Gaal deserve a pass — for now — as Manchester United boss?

Heading into Sunday’s clash against Arsenal (Watch live, 9:05 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra) at Old Trafford, United sit six points off the top four and the pressure continues to pile on the shoulders of their Dutch manager.
