Stoke got the better of Man United
Stoke threw gloom over the Premier League again on Saturday.
Having defeated Arsenal a few weeks ago, Mark Hughes’ men earned two point from Manchester United this weekend.
The star of the game for Stoke was 28-year-old Cameroon international forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
Choupo-Moting found the net to make the Potters the leaders, then scored an equalizing goal in the 63rd minute.
Those were Man United first concession of the season in the league.
As for the Red Devils, Marcus Rasford equalized Stoke’s first goal just before the end of the first half, while Lukaku put United ahead at the Bet365 Stadium.
Marcus Rashford ties with Ryan Giggs
Marcus Rashford has been putting on the show since the beginning of the season.
The 19-year-old scored the winner for England in World Cup qualifier against Slovakia in the previous week.
On Saturday, Rashford picked his second Premier League goal of the season.
He had previously registered a goal in the 2-0 triumph over Leicester City.
The goal against Stoke brought up a great stat for Rashford.
He now has a record of 12 goals for Man United as a teenager, a similar record to that of football legend Ryan Giggs.
Wayne Rooney, however found the net 15 times before he turned 20. Is Rasford set to break Rooney’s Man United record?
Why was Rashford substituted?
Rashford was unable to play the full 90 minutes against Stoke.
Juan Mata was brought in to replace the England star in the 72nd minute, and several fans observed that Rashford appeared to be limping before he exited the pitch.
There has been no indication that Rashford sustained an injury in the Potters draw, but it is likely to be an interesting topic for the fans to deliberate on.
Man United continues the action in midweek. They come against Basel at Old Trafford in the Champions League.
Rashford looks like he's struggling a bit. Limping slightly and feeling the back of his leg. Carrying on for now.
