Manchester United midfielder regrets Draw


Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has bemoaned United’s misfortune in the wake of today’s 1-1 draw with West Ham.

The 1-1 result with West Ham on Sunday was the fourth league draw in a row at the Theatre of Dreams, the first time that’s happened since 1980.

United endured a disastrous start in the game after falling behind when Diafra Sakho eases past his marker and headed home Dimitri Payet’s cross with the match only two minutes old.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic levelled in the 21st-minute but the Red Devils were left to mourn a sequence of scoring opportunities as they were held to a fourth progressive Premier League draw at Old Trafford.

It began with a 1-1 draw with Stoke, was trailed by a 0-0 draw with Burnley and afterwards before West Ham it was Arsenal who left Old Trafford with a point.

Herrera admits that the game followed the same script as their previous three draws at Old Trafford and has agreed that he doesn’t know what more Manchester United need to do to get a win at home.

The Spaniard told the BBC: “Another game the same. We control the game completely from the kick-off. They score a very lucky goal and then we control and create chances.”

West Ham goalkeeper Darren Randolph was the saviour of the West Ham team with a superb defensive display and Herrera also admits it has become a disappointing trend in recent weeks.

“Their keeper was the best one more time. That happened against Stoke, Burnley and Arsenal. We don’t know what we have to do to win a game.”

However, he pointed out that their finishing needs to get better in order to score more goals and starting collecting those three points.

“We have more possession than the opponents. I don’t know, honestly.

“I have had a run like this but not playing good. The way we are playing we are controlling the whole game from the kick-off.

“Football is about scoring goals and finishing and we are not doing that right. It is true.”

The result have surely dented the title hope of the Red Devils who are currently 11 points of the league leaders Chelsea and 8 from the fourth positioned Arsenal.
