Manchester United came back from behind to secure a 2-2 draw at West Bromwich Albion thanks to a late strike from Daley Blind.

Stéphane Sessègnon's early strike was cancelled out by Marouane Fellaini before Saido Berahino again put the Baggies in front just after the hour. Just as it was looking like United were headed towards another defeat, Blind came to the rescue as he found the net with three minutes remaining on the clock.

The game started with West Brom breaking the deadlock in the 8th minute through Sessègnon, who found the target with an excellent curling effort following some good work from Andre Wisdom.

The Red Devils tried to give an immediate response to the goal through Robin van Persie but the Dutchman's effort was saved by Boaz Myhill.

The West Brom goalkeeper then produced another save to deny Angel di Maria, who fired a good effort after managing to control a long ball from midfield.

Di Maria again tested Myhill at the half hour mark with a swerving 25-yard effort, but the goalkeeper once again came out on top as he kept out the Argentine's shot.

Despite creating more chances in the closing stages of the first half, United could not find the equaliser due to a lack of cutting edge, and the game went into the break with the Red Devils trailing 1-0.

United boss Louis van Gaal introduced Fellaini in place of Ander Herrera in the second half and the Belgian made an immediate impact as he grabbed the equaliser via an unstoppable effort that flew into the top-right corner past Myhill.

The equaliser seemed to have invigorated United as they threatened to take the lead, pushing the Baggies back into their own defensive third.

However, despite United's dominance it was the hosts who retook the lead in the 66th minute through Berahino, who calmly slotted past David De Gea after receiving a good pass from Chris Brunt.

United received a good chance to equalise in the 74th minute when substitute Ramadel Falcao nodded the ball towards van Persie, who immediately fired an effort. Although Myhill was completely beaten, the Dutchman was denied as the ball hit the foot of the post.

Finally just as a defeat looked inevitable for the Red Devils, United found the leveller in the 87th minute through Blind, who fired home from the edge of the box after Joleon Lescott failed to properly clear Rafael's cross.
