Manchester United were forced to battle for a point against West Brom at the Hawthorns this evening. 

The Red Devils came into the game on the back of two much-needed Premier League wins, and looking to make it three in a row. However they couldn't quite manage that against Alan Irvine's spirited team - Stephane Sessegnon put the Baggies ahead, while Saido Berahino put them back ahead after Marouane Fellaini had levelled things up.

Daley Blind secured a point for Manchester United with a fine late goal to make it 2-2 at the final whistle - now see how Louis van Gaal's team got on!

David de Gea - 6: Had very little to do except pick the ball out of the net a couple of times. Positioned himself well to deal with long balls.

Luke Shaw - 4: Positionally he was all over the place. The Southampton youngster was at fault for the first goal and he was far too narrow for much of the game.

Rafael - 5: Didn't offer much of a threat going forward in the first half. Far from convincing throughout.

Marcos Rojo - 5: The Argentinian didn't exactly cover himself in glory throughout the night. Probably should have done a bit better for the first goal.

Phil Jones - 4: All at sea for West Brom's second goal - sucked out of position and left an ocean of space to be exploited. Didn't look confident at all, especially with long balls.

Daley Blind - 6: Tried to make things work and looked busy but couldn't influence the game apart from during a small spell in the second half. Made amends slightly with his equaliser.

Angel di Maria - 7: Manchester United's brightest spark, although that's not saying much. Repeatedly tried his luck from range to no avail, but found space well. Substituted. 

Adnan Januzaj - 6: The youngster was given a chance to shine, and while he didn't pass it up he didn't grab it with both hands either. Needs to work harder going the other way.

Ander Herrera - 4: Pretty poor throughout and replaced at half-time for Fellaini, who scored almost straight after coming on.

Juan Mata 5 - The Spaniard really needs to impress during Rooney's absence but did no such thing. A rather disappointing show.

Robin van Persie - 5: Hit the post in the second half but that was his only highlight. Frankly the Dutchman still looks rusty and needs more time.

Subs

Marouane Fellaini - 6.5: Made an instant impact and looked lively. Always a danger from set pieces.

Ashley Young - 5: Didn't really influence the game after replacing Di Maria.

Radamel Falcao - 5: Had very little to do after coming on
