Tensions boiled over on the touchlines at the bet365 Stadium with Hughes and Mourinho involved in an incident during the match.

"We came back after 2-1 down so personally I'm happy for my goals but most importantly we played a great game at home", he told BT Sport. It was a tough game against a good team like Stoke.

The 2-2 draw means that United remain on top of the league but they longer have their 100% start to the season.

Mark Hughes has accused Jose Mourinho of sour grapes after the two managers did not shake hands at the end of Manchester United's 2-2 draw at Stoke.

Two minutes later, the Red Devils leveled matters when Paul Pogba's header sailed into the net via a deflection off Rashford.

And while the United manager says his side are capable of following that example, he also wants to ensure they play in a positive fashion. "We hope we can get a similar result that we did against Arsenal". Joe Allen was guilty of hesitating on the ball on half-way and a sweeping United counter-attack left Romelu Lukaku with space to fire past Jack Butland at the second time of asking after the England goalkeeper had superbly saved his initial effort.

New signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have fit in well and look like fantastic bargains given their hefty price tags.

Midfielder Ander Herrera is backing the Belgian hitman to flourish but has warned United not to set their sights too high.

The Serbia global was also a key part of the Chelsea side that won the title again under Antonio Conte last term, making the club's decision to allow him to depart for Old Trafford all the more surprising. So, according to the results, that is the way to win the Premier League. "We have to take it one step at a time". Subs: Grant, Tymon, Adam, Crouch, Ramadan.

"With one more goal we win 3-2 but without the mistake at the corner then we win 2-1 and Lukaku's miss doesn't matter".

UP NEXT: Basel (h), Champions League, tomorrow.

Stoke City: Darren Fletcher the former United midfielder has recovered from minor knee injury and could feature against his former club.
