Pictures: West Ham 1-1 Man United – Blind salvages a point

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United once again rescued a point away from home as Daley Blind scored in stoppage time to secure a 1-1 draw against West Ham United.

The game followed a familiar pattern to recent away games, United fell behind before coming back to save a point late on. Cheikhou Kouyate had previously put the hosts ahead with a smart finish before Louis van Gaal reverted to plan b.

Once again, Marouane Fellaini was introduced to cause chaos and eventually United were rewarded for their pressure as Blind popped home to smash home at the death.

Up to Kouyate’s opener, United had struggled but came to life once they fell behind. Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie wasted chances to draw the visitors level before Blind salvaged a point, as he did against West Brom in October.
