  • Mourinho insists Manchester United are

As they so often did last season, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United ran out of ideas against Stoke City and were unable to get a victor.

Unsurprisingly, Hughes, who has secured home wins over Manchester City, Liverpool, United and Arsenal in his time in charge of Stoke, saw it differently. It was perfectly understandable, though part of me would have liked to see more of the Mata-Henrikh Mkhitaryan-Paul Pogba creative axis.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored twice for the Potters, becoming the first player to score against United in four games this season and making Stoke the first side to deny them maximum points. Both Phil Jones and Eric Bailly were poor.

MARK HUGHES was rebuffed in a second attempt to shake hands with Jose Mourinho after Saturday's touchline spat. Should Stoke continue to play three at the back as well as they did against Manchester United then it's clear why Hughes needed so much strength there.

Still, Mourinho declared himself pleased with United's position on top of the table, ahead of Manchester City on goal difference.

As the final whistle blew, Mourinho refused to shake Hughes' hand.

"It makes it look like it's my fault, my problem, and your question is not correct, I'm sorry".

Mourinho said a draw against Stoke was a "fair result", even though he claimed only one team wanted to win.

"I'm not disappointed with the players, I'm not critical with them", he told reporters.

The United boss went on to say that Stoke "fought hard" for the point and they got it but he felt that his team's "performance was more than enough for the point". Maybe it's because it could be viewed as a negative result for him.

When speaking with the BBC about the incident, Mourinho was quite irritated.

Mourinho was irritated when asked about the incident. "Coming to Stoke City when everybody expected them to beat us is a negative".
