The point-blank stop minutes from time showed just why the Poland goalkeeper was brought straight back into the side after missing six weeks with a fractured hand.

Adam Lallana settled a match of little quality against West Brom when he buried Gaston Ramirez's superb flick beyond Ben Foster midway through the second half to secure a 1-0 success.

"It was a great performance by Boruc and it was a massive save at the end that really saved us," the Argentine told Sky Sports through his translator.

"We know of his quality and we know how amazing he is.

"I think overall we were much better than West Bromwich today. I think we were the better team and the statistics proved that.

"Overall it was a good performance by our side.

"We have won against Cardiff (in the league) and Burnley (in the FA Cup) so it hasn't been that long since we haven't recorded a win. It hasn't been that bad a run of results for us."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
