Daley Blind enjoyed a superb display as Manchester United beat Everton 1-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Blind was a calm and assured presence for Man United throughout, showing good anticipation to stop Everton’s attacks before they had a chance to get going.
However, Blind was forced off late on due to injury as United secured the three points thanks to Anthony Martial’s winner. It was a disappointing end to the match for the Dutchman but supporters lavished praise on Blind:
£13.8m for Daley Blind. Thank you @AFCAjax !!

Daley Blind having one of the best games of his #mufc career. Marcos Rojo having one of the worst.

Blind's mopping up so far has been crucial for #MUFC

In what has been an up and down season for United, Blind has been a consistent and reliable performer for Louis van Gaal’s side.
If United are to sneak in the top four of the Premier League, Blind will be a crucial player and the hope is that his injury isn’t too serious.
