Stoke City vs Manchester United

The England defender had also been at fault for the Cameroon striker's opening goal.

Leaders Manchester United face a tricky trip to the bet365 Stadium to face Mark Hughes's Stoke City in today's late game and will be well aware of the pitfalls especially after the Potters beat Arsenal in their last home game.

United claimed this period's first corner, again due to Rashford's probing and though it amounted to nothing Mourinho could be pleased.

Mourinho was reluctant to criticise Phil Jones, who slipped as Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting headed home Stoke's second.

Before this draw at Stoke, Manchester United have won all 3 premier league matches.

Hughes has enough centre-backs to be able to play a 3-4-3 effectively while Fletcher and Joe Allen are a dependable midfield two, allowing the better attacking players - Shaqiri and Jese - the freedom to go forward instead of tracking back. Substitutes: Bruno Martins Indi (on for Cameron) 6, Saido Berahino (on for Jese) 6, .

Man Utd: De Gea 7, Valencia 8, Bailly 5, Jones 5, Darmian 6, Matic 6, Pogba 6, Herrera 6, Mkhitaryan 7, Rashford 7, Lukaku 7.


FW Anthony Martial, 6 - Put in an excellent ball to Lukaku that should have set up a goal and showed brilliant skill on the left wing to leave Mame Diouf. It isn't the worst result in the world but after Manchester City scored so many goals earlier on Saturday, United would have loved the win.

But a manager who builds his team around discipline and organisation will be unimpressed with the two goals United conceded. It's a lovely cross from Diouf which picks out Choupo and he tucks it in at the back post.

"Now he seems to grow in every game that he plays for Manchester United". Stoke's lead lasts only a matter of 120 seconds.

The England worldwide was injured for large parts of the 2016-17 campaign as the Manchester United manager was forced to contend with an injury crisis at the back.

In the day's other game unbeaten Watford moved above Southampton and into the top four by beating them 2-0 with goals by Abdoulaye Doucoure and substitute Daryl Janmaat. Choupo at the double and it's Stoke turn to peg United back immediately! It looks like it came off his ankle.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was largely untroubled throughout the game as Everton managed to get just one of their 12 shots on target while six of Spurs' 15 efforts were on target.
