West Brom 2 Manchester United 2: Blind Rescues Point For Van Gaal´s Men

Daley Blind grabbed an 87th-minute equaliser as Manchester United came from behind for a second time to draw 2-2 at West Brom on Monday.

Louis van Gaal’s side were heading towards a third defeat in eight Premier League games when the in-form Saido Berahino put West Brom 2-1 up with 24 minutes remaining at The Hawthorns.

However, holding midfielder Blind then emulated Marouane Fellaini by scoring his first goal for United, denying the hosts a notable victory.

West Brom took an early lead through a fine goal from Stephane Sessegnon in a game that provided further evidence of United’s defensive fragility.

Fellaini equalised in stunning fashion within three minutes of his introduction at the start of the second half, but Alan Irvine’s men moved back ahead against the run of play when Berahino broke clear to grab his sixth league goal of the campaign.

That strike looked set to prove decisive, yet Blind had the final say when he drilled home a shot from the edge of the area late on.
