Stoke's Mark Hughes tried to get Jose Mourinho sent off

Stoke's Mark Hughes tried to get Jose Mourinho sent off

"I'm not satisfied with a point because we were the team closer to winning", he told BT Sport.

Jose Mourinho admitted Manchester United were well below their best as the Premier League leaders were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw at Stoke on Saturday. "I hope they'll continue to play well; the season has really only just started and we have many games until the end, so I am hopeful that they can continue to do well". Nearly straight from kick-off the excellent Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting forced a corner on the right.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored twice for the Potters, becoming the first player to score against United in four games this season and making Stoke the first side to deny them maximum points. José Mourinho's side remain league leaders - ahead of Manchester City, who trounced Liverpool 5-0, on goal difference - but again failed to leave this venue with three points; they last won here four years ago.

Mourinho acknowledged United had lacked rhythm after the global break, but he was still frustrated to see his team lose their unblemished record as they conceded for the first time this term.

Mourinho then saw his team take the lead in the 57th minute when Romelu Lukaku struck, however after it was Stoke's turn to level matters as six minutes later Choupo-Moting scored again. During the match the two clashed when Mourinho wandered near his opposite number. "Maybe that's why he didn't want to shake my hand".

Mourinho refused to discuss the bust-up in his postmatch news conference but walked out of a BBC interview after insisting he had not instigated the altercation. Maybe it's because it has to be viewed as a negative result for him, coming to Stoke when everybody expected them to beat us. "I don't speak about stupid things, I'm too old for that, talking about stupid things is for stupid people", the Portuguese said.

He said: "I prefer not to answer the question because your question is a bad question". Because it looks like is my fault, is my problem. In fairness, I've got history with non-handshakes so maybe it's me! I thought we asked questions from the beginning to the end and not many have done that.
