Blind Convinced Goals will Come

Manchester United defender Daley Blind is convinced his side will soon start finding the back of the net on a regular basis after a cagey start to the new season.

The Red Devils have only managed to score two goals in their opening three matches of the Premier League season – with one of those strikes coming via an own goal by Tottenham defender Kyle Walker.

Louis van Gaal’s side have been more prolific in Europe after they fired seven goals past Club Brugge over two legs to secure their place in the Champions League group stage.

United have also kept four clean sheets in their first five matches of the campaign with Blind forming a strong partnership with Chris Smalling at the heart of the defence and the Dutchman has revealed that a solid back line is the main priority for van Gaal.



He said: “We are playing really compact now and that’s something he [van Gaal] demands. One of his strengths is that we are always strong in defence and that he always knows the opponents well.”

The 25-year-old went on to that he thinks any claims that the Red Devils are boring are wrong and he is convinced that the goals will soon start flowing at Old Trafford.

He told reporters: “I think it is [unfair to say the team is boring], we want to play attacking football and I think everyone can see that. We defend very well and we create a lot of chances when we attack, we just need to score more goals but the goals will come.”
