Blind performance dazzles Man United fans

by Richard Laverty

Daley Blind showed his class to Manchester United fans against Leicester City on Saturday with a superb performance.

Blind returned to his preferred defensive midfield role against the side bottom of the league and was United’s best player, quite a feat given some of the attacking football on display from his team-mates.

The Dutchman dictated the game from midfield. His positioning in front of the defence was spot-on and his passing was as accurate as ever.

But he made a real impact on the game when he lofted a great ball over the top of the defence for international team-mate Robin van Persie to open the scoring and fans were delighted with Blind’s performance.

After filling in at left-back against both QPR and Cambridge, Blind showed just why Louis van Gaal wanted to bring him to Old Trafford at the back of a diamond system.

With Michael Carrick missing for the next month, Blind’s performances will be crucial as United look to hit form in the next few weeks.
