Comments:

League position: 11th Ryan Shawcross' second minute opener was the quickest Premier League goal on a New Year's Day since Marcus Bent after 54 seconds for Ipswich Town at Charlton Athletic in 2002. Shawcross is the second Stoke City player to score the first goal of a year in the Premier League after Tuncay Sanli against Fulham on 5 January 2010.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Manchester United have now scored in each of their last 21 games against Stoke City. United have now won only two of their last 12 away games in the Premier League.
