Stoke City v Manchester United: match preview

"With one more goal we win 3-2 but without the mistake at the corner [for Stoke's second] then we win 2-1 and Lukaku's miss doesn't matter".

Speaking after the game, a delighted Mark Hughes told the BBC: "We were up against the best side in the Premier League judging by what they have shown so far".

"I don't speak about stupid things, I'm too old for that, talking about stupid things is for stupid people".

But counterpart Mourinho, who refused to shake Hughes' hand after the game following a tiff on the sidelines, said: "I'm not satisfied with a point because we were the team closer to winning".

Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don't take negative results too kindly. "Sometimes that is because they are not used to it, and maybe they react in the wrong way". "I seem to get involved in handshake issues".

"I prefer not to answer question about handshakes - it's a bad question".

While the Red Devils did manage to score twice themselves, it was Cameroonian global striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's brace that helped Mark Hughes' side earn a valuable point.

Mourinho noted following the 4-0 win over Swansea City that he wanted to see how his men would react in hard situations. "[Stoke] defended a lot and it is becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending now". They fought hard and probably deserved a point.

The Cameroonian global played an integral part in a frenetic encounter, scoring his first Potters' goal and breaking the deadlock in the 43 minute; sliding in ahead of the visiting defence to finish off a fine passing move from six yards after great work from Darren Fletcher and Mame Biram Diouf.
