Cape Town - Daley Blind's injury-time equaliser rescued a 1-1 draw for Manchester United against West Ham United on Sunday but a point was not enough to regain third spot in the Premier League.

Defender Phil Jones is demanding that his teammates move on from the draw and look to beat Burnley at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Louis van Gaal’s misfiring side have now dropped down to fourth after Southampton beat QPR 1-0 to move ahead of the Red Devils.

"In the end, we are disappointed in the dressing room that we didn’t take all three points," Jones told MUTV.

"But West Ham pressed us well and I think a draw was a fair result.

"Ultimately, we are disappointed. We needed to win and it was a big game for us. We have not lost, which is a plus, but we could have gained some ground. It was not to be. We have got another big game on Wednesday night now and we need to win that one as well.

"The manager said in the dressing room after the game that he couldn’t fault our spirit. If we had shown that more in the first half then we might have come away with a victory. But we need to address and evaluate this game. Then we will move on to the Burnley game."

Manchester United host Burnley on Wednesday. The match kicks off at Old Trafford at 21:45.
