Mourinho frustrated by Stoke stalemate

Mourinho frustrated by Stoke stalemate”

That was the first goal United had conceded in the league this season after a huge 535 minutes of football - an impressive feat for Mark Hughes' men.

"With one more goal we win 3-2 but without the mistake at the corner we win 2-1 and Lukaku's miss does not matter".

That was disingenuous: Stoke carried a real threat. We were up against arguably the best side in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho's previous teams have won the league on each of the other three occasions they had picked up three points in each of their first four league games, but this shows there is still a long, long way to go.

Stoke began the better.

Choupo-Moting celebrates his first of the day. Xherdan Shaqiri took it but overhit his effort. Choupo at the double and it's Stoke turn to peg United back immediately!

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

"I am disappointed. but after the lucky 1-0 down it was really hard".

Jones has struck up a formidable partnership with Ivory Coast worldwide Eric Bailly to help Jose Mourinho's defence ease into the new campaign. Substitutes: Bruno Martins Indi (on for Cameron) 6, Saido Berahino (on for Jese) 6, . Diouf crossed the ball in from the right after being released by a superb pass by Darren Fletcher and the forward fired home from close range.

Had the freedom of the Potteries to connect with the header that led to United's opener, though not even the biggest Paul Pogba aficionado would claim he meant to play it off Marcus Rashford's head.

"But he is playing out of position and against a top team, perhaps even he could be found out".

Defenders seem to shrivel when Rashford starts to run at them with pace but his global exertions seem to catch up with him in the second half.

Most keepers would have only started to lift their arm after the ball had hit the back of the net - but De Gea isn't most keepers.

Joe Allen was caught in possession by Matteo Darmian at the halfway line just before the hour mark.

Was having a solid game - save for some agricultural clearances - before losing his balance and falling flat on his backside while Choupo-Moting stole in for his second. Mourinho was in no doubt Jones was at fault. "No problem - these things are part of the game", the manager said.

Stoke City held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw at the bet365 stadium ending the red devils 100% start this season.

"I pushed him because he was in my technical area", Hughes said.

"I'm not sure why he didn't want to shake my hand, I didn't think there were any issues". Maybe it's because it has to be viewed as a negative result for him, coming to Stoke when everybody expected them to beat us. Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don't take negative results too kindly.

"In fairness I have my history with handshakes".

Mourinho added: "These things are a part of the game, he's playing well for us, he's probably exhausted after two matches with the global team but he can not play Tuesday so is good that he gets his rest and it is an opportunity for Lindelof and [Chris] Smalling". When questioned about it later, Hughes simply laughed it off but Mourinho snapped at the reporter who asked the question.
