Video: Sam Allardyce - Manchester United's long-ball tactics worked

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce called for Louis van Gaal's long-ball tactics to be scrutinised after Manchester United rescued a 1-1 draw at Upton Park. A superb goal from Cheikhou Kouyate, the midfielder deployed in defence due to the absences of Winston Reid and James Collins, had looked like giving West Ham a deserved first Premier League win over United in seven years and at the 13th attempt. But Daley Blind scored in stoppage-time to rescue a scarcely deserved point after a lacklustre performance from the visitors which was summed up by a second-half miss by Radamel Falcao.
