Jose Mourinho took aim at Stoke's apparently defensive tactics after Manchester United's ideal start to the English Premier League ended in a 2-2 draw in the fourth round on Saturday. Darren Fletcher picked out Mame Biram-Diouf with a long diagonal ball, who set up new signing Choupo-Moting to score his first Stoke City goal.
United scored 10 goals without reply in its three victories before the global break but came unstuck against a team that has already beaten Arsenal this season.
Jose Mourinho's side remain top of the Premier League on goal difference while Stoke's reward for frustrating another of the title challengers is a move to 10th spot.
Unfortunately for them, his efforts today couldn't help United to a win against Stoke, but Lukaku can hold his head high at proving a few doubters wrong with his prolific start at United.
The United manager insisted afterwards only his team had tried to win the game - Hughes disagreed - while ruing the absence of Marouane Fellaini, who was ruled out with a calf injury.

Lehmann hails 'gutsy' Handscomb and Warner
But with this innings, Warner will definitely be pleased as he managed to improve upon his indifferent sub-continental record. David Warner was unbeaten on 88, delivering another big subcontinent score after making a century in the first Test in Dhaka.
Jose Mourinho's side head to Stoke on the back of three straight wins, scoring 10 goals without conceding. Having taking the lead, Stoke gained a point against the general run of play thanks to a sensational performance by Erik Maxim Choupo-Moting.
Stoke's equaliser came from a Shaqiri corner.
Herrera, a key player last season, gives Mourinho something different in midfield.
"I pushed him because he was in my technical area", Hughes said. The pair had jostled in the second period and did not shake hands at the end.
The Red Devils have scored four goals from substitutes so far this season; more than any other Premier League team (Martial x2, Rashford and Fellaini). Stoke have failed to beat United in each of their last three head-to-heads and could well come unstuck as a result. Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don't take negative results too kindly. Mourinho had been asking for just such a test.
