Daley Blind: Man United players have themselves to blame for Burnley

by Tanveer Arayan


Daley Blind believes Manchester United players only have themselves to blame after their draw against Burnley.

Jose Mourinho’s side had 37 shots throughout the entire game and dominated possession, but failed to claim all three points.

A combination of Man United players failing to remain clinical in front of goal and Tom Heaton’s impressive saves for Burnley, resulted in no goals at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking after the game, Blind claims it’s hard to believe United didn’t score at least one goal.

“It is hard to believe. I think we created 15 chances, maybe more, so it is hard to believe we didn’t score one goal,” he said.

“I think we made the keeper that good because we missed chances, he gets more trust and then he gets into his game. He is a good keeper today but in spite of that we should score. We had so many chances.

“As a team performance, we were positive and we brought a lot of energy. We didn’t give even one big chance away so we did well in defence. It’s frustrating.”

Blind believes United’s profligacy in front of goal was one of the key reasons they were only able claim one point, and rightly so.

United created plenty of chances, but it all went to waste as our forwards were not clinical enough.
