United held as Choupo-Moting fires Stoke

Stoke City strike Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting expresses his delight at opening his account for the cub after his brace helped earn a 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

When commenting on the first goal he said: 'It was a wonderful cross for their opener but Bailly could have done much better.

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".

A look ahead to Saturday's Premier League matches, including Man City v Liverpool and Stoke v Man Utd. His initial effort was saved by Butland, but Lukaku's second bite of the cherry saw United score a deserved second goal. Had it not been for a superb Kasper Schmeichel penalty stop in Leicester's 2-0 loss at Old Trafford, that return would look all the better, but the 24-year-old's impact is not to be scoffed at in the wake of his move to United. Moments after the restart, the Reds won a corner, and Rashford inadvertently headed the equalizer from the resulting set piece.

The lead lasted only a matter of two minutes, however, as United levelled when Paul Pogba's header bounced off Marcus Rashford and nestled into the back of the net. Immediately after, Romelu Lukaku nearly put United head, only to be denied by Butland.

Towards the end of second half, both teams were pressing hard for victory. Despite their vulnerability, United were soon ahead.

Stoke's equaliser came from a Shaqiri corner. United now had a counter of their own, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan played in a beautifully disguised ball for Lukaku.

They say that goalkeeping is a dying art, but in the likes of David de Gea and Jack Butland, they may just have found their messiahs.

Choupo at the double and it's Stoke turn to peg United back immediately!

Mourinho will no doubt be proud of his players manful response to that 43rd-minute setback, though. Marcus Rashford impressed for England and that is likely to have influenced Jose Mourinho's decision to reinstate the player in place of Anthony Martial. Martial nearly created a victor 10 minutes after coming on, but Lukaku could only blast his shot over the bar, following the Frenchman's cross.

MF Jesse Lingard, NR - Came on late for Mkhitaryan and got in one good cross.
