Comments:

League position: 10th Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting became the first player to score two goals in a Premier League game against Manchester United since Alexis Sánchez for Arsenal on 4 October 2015. Stoke City scored more than one goal for only the second time in their last nine games in the Premier League. Potters boss Mark Hughes became only the second manager to go unbeaten in four consecutive Premier League games against a José Mourinho team, after Ronald Koeman (five games). Stoke City manager Mark Hughes: "He [Choupo-Moting] will get the headlines and rightly so because he was a big part of the performance and the result overall. He should be pleased and I was delighted when I got him here. It was a decent bit of business. We were up against the best side in the Premier League judging by what they have shown so far. We didn't allow them as much space and everything I asked the guys to do, they fulfilled."

Comments:

League position: 1st With this draw, Manchester United became the last team to lose their 100% record in this Premier League season. Romelu Lukaku scored the 150th goal of his club career (322 games in all competitions). Romelu Lukaku became the fourth player to score four goals in their first four Premier League appearances for United (also Louis Saha, Robin van Persie and Zlatan Ibrahimović). Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "I'm not satisfied with a point because we were the team closer to winning. It is a result I accept, though. One team tried to win, one team tried to get the point but they fought hard to get that point - they defended well, they counter-attacked and in set-pieces they are powerful. That was a great save by David De Gea - the only one he did, because in the first-half there was only a couple of slow shots by Xherdan Shaqiri."
