UPDATE: STOKE CITY 1, MANCHESTER UNITED 1
Wayne Rooney scored from a free-kick to kill two birds with one stone after he rescued a point for Manchester United and also became the club’s all-time leading goalscorer. Rooney fired a free-kick into the top corner of the net in the 90th minute score his 250th goal for Manchester United, replacing the legendary Sir Bobby, who was in the crowd looks delighted.
Stoke City have struck first against Manchester United with Juan Mata unfortunately putting the ball past his own goalkeeper, David de Gea in the 19th minute. Work to do now for Jose Mourinho’s side, which still lacks a bit of intensity going forward. Paul Pogba needs to get into the game a little more.
Jose Mourinho has made four changes to the side that finished 1-1 with Liverpool in the last Premier League game, while there is a place on the bench for Bastian Schweinsteiger and Wayne Rooney starts as a substitute.
As for the changes, Mourinho has recalled Chris Smalling, who comes in defense for Marcos Rojo, while Daley Blind replaces Matteo Darmian at left-back.
To perhaps deal with the set-piece threat from especially Peter Crouch of Stoke City, Mourinho has decided to start Marouane Fellaini, who replaces Michael Carrick in the midfield.
The fourth adjustment to the side from the last time out is Juan Mata coming in for Anthony Martial.
Meanwhile, Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has opted to stick with the same starting XI that picked up a 3-1 win at Sunderland last weekend.
January signing Saido Berahino is not available for the home side as he was not signed in time to register for the match.
