Stoke City's Ryan Shawcross misses Manchester United clash with back injury

United held as Choupo-Moting fires Stoke

Jose Mourinho will need Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku to pick up where they left off.

"For the most part, United have had the ability and capacity to sweep everybody else before them very comfortably". 'The best way is to get about them and ask questions'. "We have had a good start to the season because we have had some hard games". "We went 2-1 down and came back again", Fletcher told BT Sport.

Bottom club Crystal Palace play at Burnley and Swansea City host Newcastle United on Sunday, while West Ham United who, like Palace, have lost their first three games, face Huddersfield Town on Monday. Hughes, too, is the same.

After a touchline row during the 2-2 draw, Mourinho snubbed Hughes when he tried to shake his hand at the final whistle.

Mark Hughes is unbeaten in his last three league meetings with Mourinho (W1 D2 L0) - the only manager to have gone 4+ games in a row unbeaten against the Portuguese boss in the Premier League is Ronald Koeman (five in a row). Mourinho had been asking for just such a test.

Amanda Nunes Retains Championship Via Split Decision Over Valentina Shevchenko
Many boos accompanied the tactical fight, but champ Nunes said her priority was not on delivering a crowd-pleasing fight. Round five had a big question coming in: how would the judges score this? Nunes lands a hard straight right hand late.

It was telling from Ander Herrera's performance that he is still rusty from the summer, which should be a given considering it was his first start of the season.

United won a risky free-kick when Allen fouled Juan Mata on the right-hand side of the area but the Stoke wall held firm, and Butland made a fine reaction stop from Jones' late header and Pogba hooked a half-chance over in the final seconds.

Cameroon winger Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is also a doubt after injuring a hamstring on worldwide duty, while several other players are carrying minor knocks.

That was disingenuous: Stoke carried a real threat. It will only serve as an added boost to him that his first ever goals for the club were against a club the size of United, who incidentally happened to be on a streak of consecutive clean sheets.

But he admitted that Stoke, for whom former United player Darren Ferguson was excellent in midfield, probably deserved the point. Mark Hughes will hope that this will only be a sign of better things to come. There was nothing De Gea could do about either goal. It is disappointing to see them throw the points away, particularly through an individual error; the defence had been brilliant this season but Eric Bailly and Phil Jones looked all over the place at times on Saturday.
