Man United held by Stoke, ideal EPL start ends

Man United held by Stoke, ideal EPL start ends”

Nemanja Matic has warned Manchester United that they can not afford too many repeats of their 2-2 draw at Stoke if they are to land the Premier League title.

It was a tempestuous affair on the touchline, with Hughes shoving Mourinho away from his technical area during the second half, before the Portuguese left the dugout at full-time without offering a handshake.

United's flawless start to the season ended on Saturday at the bet365 Stadium, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's brace sealing a draw for Mark Hughes' side.

Mourinho said a draw against Stoke was a "fair result", even though he claimed only one team wanted to win. After Romelu Lukaku put United in front in the 57th minute, Choupo-Moting headed in Stoke's equalizer six minutes later.

"We showed confidence and played some good football on the ball".

United's poor defensive display may have been the talking point for many, but the lack a of handshake between the two managers after the game has also raised some eyebrows.

"I think it's a bit lazy of people to keep on reverting to that "Stoke are a physical team" thing". "You can mention the amount of finance they can throw at their team but it is what it is, we know that".

"Overall we have changed, we're a different type of team".

"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".

Mourinho was so angered by the incident that he made a point of shaking the hand of every member of the Stoke staff except for Hughes at the end of the game.
