Manchester United missed out on the chance to move back into the Premier League’s top four last night, after a 2-2 draw with West Brom at the Hawthorns.
In what was a thoroughly entertaining game, United twice came from behind to draw level and leave with a share of the points.
Defensively, United looked suspect once again whilst going forward in the second half in particular they looked capable of scoring at almost any time.
Maraoune Fellaini and Daley Blind both registered their first Manchester United goals with fine finishes, although Louis van Gaal will be conscious his team have to improve with Chelsea arriving at Old Trafford on Sunday.
United currently sit sixth in the table on 12 points from their opening eight matches, of which you could argue they are yet to face a real top opponent.
Swansea City, Sunderland, Burnley, QPR, Leicester, West Ham and Everton have provided the opposition for United so far this campaign, and van Gaal is aware the sterner tests are yet to come, starting on Sunday.
With that in mind, we have had a look at five things we may have learnt about this new look United side after their latest performance.
