Daley Blind on the West Ham draw, his goal and the travelling fans


Manchester United midfielder Daley Blind says that his side was not happy with a draw after it came away from a clash with West Ham United with just a point.

The Dutchman scored the equaliser in stoppage time at The Boleyn Ground, his second point-saving goal of the season after the 87th minute effort away at West Bromwich Albion in October.

But the 24-year-old - who praised the fans for their support - says one point is not enough as the Red Devils drop points in the race for a top four finish.

"We created a lot of chances that we could score from, but we didn't score," the Dutchman told MUTV.

"In the end, you could be happy with 1-1, but we aren't. We deserved more from the game.

"That [the goal] was a nice moment for me. The ball found me, I was thinking to shoot and then everything went really fast.

"I think we had to score earlier in the game and not at the end. I think we could have done that. We had the chances, but not the finish.

"In the second half we started better and kept up the pressure directly after the break but then they scored an early goal.

"We showed a fighting spirit and the character we have and we tried to win the game in the end, but we have to do with the draw and one point. Of course, we wanted more.

"We kept on going and also the fans were amazing. They're incredible with how they support for the whole 90 minutes, so credit for that. That keeps us going and we want that every game.

"I like that there's another game coming already because we can forget this one. We have to keep looking up and three points is important in the next game."
