Lukaku Strike Not Enough As Reds Held

Lukaku Strike Not Enough As Reds Held

Jones has struck up a formidable partnership with Ivory Coast global Eric Bailly to help Jose Mourinho's defence ease into the new campaign. United (12 goals) have scored two goals more than Manchester City (10 goals), and thanks to that, they continue their stay at pole position.

Mourinho's side also had the second-best defensive record in the Premier League last season, conceding just 29 goals, and Choupo-Moting's goals were the first to go against them since Harry Kane scored against United back in May.

The Red Devils dropped their first points of the season against the Potters, despite taking a 2-1 lead in the second half of a game Mourinho feels they dominated.

"I'm not satisfied with a point because we were the team closer to winning".

Speaking to MUTV before the game Herrera emphasised on the threat that Stoke possess and how the Potters play with strong head which makes it hard for any team to get past them also their win against Arsenal would give them enormous confidence coming into this big showdown.

Stoke next face Newcastle United at St James' Park.

Close-season signing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is working hard to be fit to face United after returning from global duty with Cameroon nursing a slight hamstring injury.

Owen then continued rather skeptically, "I think they are all much of a muchness really".

Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Romelu Lukaku all start as well for Man United who can return to top of the English Premier League standing if they avoid defeat.

Moments later, David De Gea pulled off one of the saves of the season to deny Stoke an equaliser.

As the first half wore on, United's confident attack began to find gaps and Rashford, a handful up front, twice tested Butland in quick succession. United might have grabbed a late triumph but Lukaku snatched at a close-range chance and Pogba hooked over.

Jose Mourinho refused to shake Mark Hughes' hands. He however shook hands with Hughes' backroom staff.

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

"I am happy with Lukaku with or without goals because his contribution is good", said Mourinho.
