West Bromwich Albion 2-2 Manchester United – Premier League – 20th October 2014


A late Daley Blind goal denied West Brom all three points in what was a cracking Monday night clash at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies took the lead on eight minutes, with Stephane Sessegnon firing home a superb effort as the Red Devils’ backline once again look vulnerable. However, just after the break, sub Marouane Fellaini powered home the equaliser which looked like kickstarting the visitors’ night.

Alan Irvine’s men, though, were in no mood for capitulation and they once again took the lead through the in-form Saido Berahino, who slotted home just after the hour-mark.

After that goal, the visitors pushed and pushed for an equaliser, with the rather ineffective Robin Van Persie hitting the post. But just when it looked like the Baggies would hold on, Van Persie’s international team-mate, Daley Blind, curled the ball past Boaz Myhill from the edge of the box.

While it was a point clawed back for United, Van Gaal won’t be happy with his side’s defending. As for Alan Irvine, to see all three points snatched away from him at the death will hurt.

    Great finish from Blind.

    We do need to pick up full points from away games, but I’m content with our progress.

    As for West Brom, they are a decent side.

    How long will they keep hold of Berahino for though?

    That kid has not just got fantastic ability, but for someone so young he seems to have his head screwed on right.

    The Baggies will be lucky to keep hold of him until February, let alone the end of the season.

    I just hope that if he does move, he gets first team action week in week out.

    Liverpool should be keeping tabs.

    He may not sell as many shirts as Mario, but my god he looks a much better striker.

    He has only got his head screwed on because we screwed it back on after last year when he started to loose it (ironically it started just after the united game last year that he scored).

    LVG needs to get it together, why was Falcao not starting??
