Blind: West Brom were organised and difficult to play against.

Manchester United defender Daley Blind has hailed the performance of West Brom in their two nil defeat to United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Goals from Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata made sure United scored for the first time in the Premier League since their victory over Everton some weeks ago.

"They were really organised and difficult to play against," Blind told MUTV, reports. "We were really patient and created chances. We scored an important goal and from there on they tried to press a bit but I think we did well."

Blind also said that United needs to be patient and move the ball quickly, something that was lacking for much of the game.

"I think a lot of teams come here to get a point," the Dutchman continued. "We have to be patient and move the ball quickly, and sometimes it takes a while before you get a chance, but in the end we got the three points and that’s the most important thing.”

"They tried to force something but I think we did well," he said. "We still didn’t give away any good chances. I think we were very organised when we were attacking and defending.

"We’re doing well now. We go on from here, we’re really focused and organised and helping each other whenever possible. It’s always a nice feeling for the team and especially me as a defender to get a clean sheet."
