Manchester United salvaged a late draw away at West Bromwich Albion, after finding themselves behind twice in the match, thanks to a powerful strike from Daley Blind. Despite the double comeback, the result will have to go down as two points lost for the Red Devils as they paid for two sloppy defensive errors, having dominated the majority of the game.

Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson, orchestrators of the two great periods of sustained success, have been immortalised, in statue form, outside the ground. Sir Matt gazes into the distance, where the holy trinity of Charlton, Law and Best celebrate together, a monument of glory from a now distant age.

The International break usually provides a relatively dull and unwelcome inconvenience for football fans, but this couldn't have been more true than for Louis Van Gaal and Manchester United.

Not only did the fixture list throw up numerous uninspiring affairs, but it halted a much needed momentum found within the Old Trafford camp after a hard-earned 2-1 victory over Everton – Van Gaal's first consecutive wins since taking over.

Quality comes in many forms. Not every player is able to flash their calibre through such self-evident acts of brilliance as a decisive finish, a last-ditch tackle, a defence-splitting pass or some mazy dribble past multiple markers.

Defensive midfielders seem particularly prone to going overlooked and unloved by those unable or unwilling to appreciate the less immediate parts of the game.

Shaw played two games for the U-21s this week whilst Adnan Januzaj, who has committed his long-term future to the club, was an unused sub on the bench for the senior Belgium team.
