Mourinho snubbed Stoke's Hughes twice after Man United draw

Mourinho snubbed Stoke's Hughes twice after Man United draw”

Romelu Lukaku put the visitors ahead midway through the second-half when he poked his finish past Jack Butland at the second attempt.

United scored 10 goals without reply in its three victories before the global break but came unstuck against a team that has already beaten Arsenal this season.

"They weren't performing at their normal level but we were in the game, we fought hard and we were closer to winning than losing". They fought hard and probably deserved a point.

"A point is a point. It is not what we came for but a point is a point".

Stoke City held Manchester United in an absorbing contest at the Bet365 Stadium thanks to a brace from striker Maxim Choupo-Moting.

"My aim is always to score or get an assist so I'm very happy we didn't lose and I'm happy for my first goals for Stoke - I hope to continue like that".

"I thought it was a magnificent performance today against arguably the best team up to this point in Manchester United and the threat they gave us".

"I'm not sure why he didn't want to shake my hand, I didn't think there were any issues".

Hughes later pointed out he offered to shake hands with his opposite number after the match only for his offer to be rejected, while it has since emerged that the Welshman also did likewise outside the dressing room area.

The Cameroon forward's opener was canceled out by Marcus Rashford in first-half stoppage time. Maybe he was upset about the result.

"It's a negative. Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don't take negative results too kindly".

"I want to be polite with you, and I prefer not to answer to the question because your question is really a bad question", he said.

Hughes' well-drilled side took great pride in ending the Premier League's last remaining 100 per cent record - and the City boss clearly got under Mourinho's skin as no full-time handshake was forthcoming. "I have to get used to it sometimes".
