“In the end, we are disappointed in the dressing room that we didn’t take all three points,” Jones said. “We have not lost, which is a plus, but we could have gained some ground. It was not to be. “We have got another big game on Wednesday night now and we need to win that one as well. “The manager said in the dressing room after the game that he couldn’t fault our spirit. “If we had shown that more in the first half then we might have come away with a victory. “We need to address and evaluate this game. Then we will move on to the Burnley game.” West Ham, meanwhile, will hope to respond from a result which felt like a loss by recording a victory at Southampton. Midfielder Stewart Downing told whufc.com: “We needed the win to go back above Liverpool, but we didn’t lose the game and got a point, so we can go to Southampton and look to win.” Hammers boss Sam Allardyce questioned United’s long-ball tactics afterwards as Marouane Fellaini caused havoc, leading to Blind’s leveller. Downing added: “We’re frustrated because we thought we were the better team. “They played a lot more direct than I thought they would, but we dealt with it and it’s the only real chance they’ve had.” Left-back Aaron Cresswell praised Cheikhou Kouyate, the midfielder who was deployed in defence and scored a superb goal to put the Hammers in front. “I don’t think he quite knew what he was doing,” said Cresswell, tongue in cheek. “It was a great finish. He has come into centre-half and he did an excellent job and deserved man of the match.” The late concession did not dent the Hammers’ belief too much. “We are still full of confidence and we know we deserved the full three points over the 90 minutes and it was not to be,” Cresswell added. “We are full of confidence for Southampton on Wednesday and we are looking forward to it.” “I like that there’s an early game already because we can forget this one,” Blind told MUTV. “We have to keep looking up and three points is important in the next game. “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 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. “It’s good that we’re creating chances and it’s good that we keep possession.” United boss Louis van Gaal, who will be without Luke Shaw against Burnley after his late dismissal, was particularly disappointed with the first-half showing, but pleased with the reaction as the leveller came from the direct route. Van Gaal said: “I think in the first half we have a lack in confidence. Otherwise I cannot explain how bad we were.” Defender Phil Jones, like Van Gaal, felt the visitors could have claimed victory after a late bombardment. The Dutchman scored a stoppage-time equaliser as United rescued a 1-1 draw despite being second best at Upton Park. The Red Devils missed the chance to move within three points of second-placed Manchester City and remained fourth ahead of the Clarets clash at Old Trafford. Manchester United saviour Daley Blind wants to forget his point-saving heroics at West Ham and focus on claiming victory over Burnley on Wednesday. Press Association
Raheem Sterling made a dream debut for Manchester City, as Manuel Pellegrini’s side beat AS Roma 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw after 90 minutes in their International Champions Cup opener.Sterling scored within three minutes of the start to give the Premier League side the lead at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.Miralem Pjanic embarrassed Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero with a Roma equaliser from 25 yards on eight minutes, but the Argentine’s discomfort was nothing compared to Ashley Cole’s later in the match.The former England defender gifted City the lead eight minutes into the second half when he completely mishit an attempted backpass, allowing 18-year-old City striker Kelechi Iheanacho to beat Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis from close range.City had dominated the first half, with David Silva linking well with Sterling in a 4-3-3 formation, but the sheer number of second-half substitutions robbed the match of any flow and fluency.Roma playmaker Adem Ljajic made it 2-2 from a free-kick on 88 minutes to send the match into penalties. City goalkeeper Joe Hart, who replaced Caballero at half-time, kept out Seydou Keita’s spot-kick in sudden-death after scoring an emphatic spot-kick of his own to secure two points for City for the shoot-out win.City face Real Madrid on Friday as they continue their preparations for the new Premier League season, which starts with a visit to the Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion on 10 August.– –
