Man United Net Last-Gasp Equaliser At West Ham

English Premier League

Result: West Ham 1-1 Man Utd

Date: 8 February 2015

Venue: Boleyn Ground

A last-minute equaliser saw Manchester United come back from a goal down to draw 1-1 at West Ham United on Sunday.
 
The Hammers completely dominated the set-pieces during the first half but just couldn't find the decisive touch to take the lead.
 
David de Gea was called to action in the 31st minute as the hosts again threatened from a set-piece. A floated ball towards the far post found Tomkins but his headed effort was saved by De Gea's feet.
 
West Ham deservedly took the lead four minutes into the second half. A free-kick was sent high into the Manchester United area where Cheikhou Kouyaté took a couple of deft touched before turning and volleying brilliantly past De Gea.
 
The Red Devils' first real shot on goal came in the 53rd minute when Angel Di Maria picked out Robin van Persie with a pass over the top. The Dutchman half-volleyed with power but Adrian was up to the task at the near post.
 
Radamel Falcao and Van Persie linked up well in the 83rd minute and came close to finding the equaliser. Van Persie got a square ball from Falcao but his shot was kept out well by Adrian.
 
In the dying minutes of the clash Manchester United finally scored their equaliser. A clearance fell for Daley Blind and he volleyed a bouncing ball into the bottom corner of the Hammers goal to claim a point for the visitors.
 
Elsewhere, Stoke City salvaged a point at Newcastle after Peter Crouch netted a 90th-minute equaliser to cancel out Jack Colback's opener in the 74th minute and finish the game 1-1.
 
West Brom came back from two goals down to claim a point against Burnley after a 2-2 draw at Turf Moor. 
 
Ashley Barnes (11') and Danny Ings (32') put the Clarets two goals clear before Chris Brunt (45') and Brown Ideye (67')
