Manchester United’s hero-of-the-hour Daley Blind was pleased to come away from their clash with West Ham with a point after the match ended 1-1.
The Dutch international struck in stoppage time to salvage a point for the Red Devils after Cheikhou Kouyaté stunner opened the scoring at Upton Park.
Luke Shaw was dismissed for a second bookable offence, after a late challenge on Stewart Downing in the 93 minute, but Louis van Gaal’s men will be pleased to escape with a draw.
“It was a nice reward for not giving up but of course you want more,” the 24-year-old told Sky Sports.
“The first half was really a battle but we couldn’t play the ball how we wanted.
"In the second half, I think we started well but then their goal came and we had to fight for the good moments. I think we picked it up well and showed that we are capable of fighting.
“We started the second half better than the first half. They were winning a lot of headers in the first half, second half we did it better and won some second balls and then created some danger. It was a real battle in midfield.”
