Daley Blind rescues Manchester United with late goal vs. West Ham

LONDON (AP) — Netherlands midfielder Daley Blind smashed home an injury-time equalizer to rescue a point for Manchester United against West Ham in a pulsating Premier League game at Upton Park on Sunday.

West Ham's Cheikhou Kouyate opened the scoring with a stunning volley in the 49th minute, after controlling the ball from Mark Noble's lifted free kick, and spinning 180 degrees in the penalty box.

But Blind saved the visitors at the death after a speculative ball from Marcos Rojo was only partially cleared by the West Ham defense, and landed at the midfielder's feet to guide past goalkeeper Adrian.
