Stoke 2 Manchester United 2

Stoke 2 Manchester United 2”

Stoke manager Mark Hughes accused Jose Mourinho of sour grapes for refusing his post-match handshake after Manchester United's winning run ended in the English Premiership on Saturday night.

"But it's a point and probably Stoke City deserved the point".

And Matic, who won the title with Chelsea last season, told MUTV: "If we want to be champions, we have to win games like this because in these games, if you win, you are champion". These games are huge for us and we always enjoy them.

Mourinho's side head to the Britannia Stadium on the back of three straight wins, scoring 10 goals without conceding. The same goes for forward Mame Biram Diouf, who also has a knee problem.

Hughes will check on another summer signing, winger Maxim Choupo-Moting, who strained a hamstring while on global duty with Cameroon. Kurt Zouma's ankle injury will need to be assessed but £18m signing Kevin Wimmer could make his debut against Manchester United on Saturday.

The bust-up happened when Stoke manager Hughes got annoyed at Mourinho entering his technical area when they squabbled over a foul.

Hughes, unbeaten in four home league meetings against his former club during his time in charge at Stoke, believes United look the real deal under Jose Mourinho this season.

"We had a similar situation a year ago with Man City, who were not able to sustain it, but the make up of the Man United squad is very strong and they're playing in a way that their fans will take to and enjoy".

Young, promising Zouma has recovered from a disgusting fall and looks driven to move further in his career and Stoke City will provide him with all the tools to do so. The opener saw David de Gea beaten for the first time in the league this season.

Manchester United's strength in depth will prevail.
