Stoke ends United's ideal start to EPL season

10 September 2017

The win pushed Spurs into the top five and provided a boost ahead of their opening Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley, where they are playing home league games this season but have yet to win one.

United remained on top of the English Premier League despite losing its 100% record in a 2-2 draw at Stoke.

Cameroon global Choupo-Moting opened the scoring for the host before drawing his side back level after Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford had struck for the visitors.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes accused Jose Mourinho of sour grapes for refusing his post-match handshake after Manchester United's winning run ended. "(Stoke) defended a lot and it is becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending now. With how good they have looked, Stoke would surely be happy to earn a point against them. A brace from new signing Choupo-Moting alongside goals from Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku proved to be the deciding factors of an incredibly tight affair.

It was Earth, Wind & Fire playing the bejeezus out of "Got To Get You Into My Life" during the otherwise humiliating Sgt. He neatly chested it to his right foot, then poked it past Lopez. "As a striker I was in the right spot and I finished".

Now reports suggest Hughes used "foul and abusive language" when Mourinho he told him to get out of his area, while there are also claims that he urged the fourth official to send the United boss to the stands.

"One team tried to win, one team tried to get the point but they fought hard to get that point", said Mourinho.

The Stoke players protested about the equaliser, arguing Rashford was in an offside position.

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

Stoke: Butland 7, Cameron 6, Zouma 8, Wimmer 6, Diouf 6, Fletcher 6, Allen 6, Pieters 6, Shaqiri 7, Jese 6, Choupo-Moting 8.

United are now joint leaders with Manchester City on 10 points. Stoke's lead lasts only a matter of 120 seconds.

MF Ander Herrera, 6 - Didn't do enough in his first start of the season to make Mourinho think twice about starting him in future.

"Maybe it was because it has to be viewed as a negative result for him, coming to Stoke when everybody expects them to beat us". "It has not happened so far but going a goal behind will be a different challenge and I want to see how these players try to change a result". When questioned about it later, Hughes simply laughed it off but Mourinho snapped at the reporter who asked the question.

Colin Trevorrow leaves Star Wars 9
That would make sense, since he's already directing The Last Jedi , the next film in the core Star Wars series. It only took Lucasfilm, owned by Disney, a day to find their replacement - double Oscar victor Ron Howard .
