Only one team tried to win - Mourinho frustrated by Stoke approach

Bundesliga should copy Premier League window says Ancelotti

United fell behind to Maxim Choupo-Moting's goal towards the end of the first half but responded nearly immediately through Marcus Rashford, before going on to secure a 2-2 draw at the bet365 Stadium.

"No, I'm not satisfied with a point because we were the team closer to winning", he said via his club's site. Nearly straight from kick-off the excellent Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting forced a corner on the right.

"My team-mates have helped me to become a part of the team very quickly and I'll work hard to help them too".

Stoke manager Mark Hughes accused Mourinho of taking the result poorly.

"They defended a lot and it's becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending".

But, talking at United's Carrington training ground on the eve of a potentially difficult visit to Stoke City, Mourinho insisted his team are not afraid of a hard, defensive battle.

The attack set the tempo for a high-paced contest where Stoke pinned United back before the visitors exerted some control.

The midfield trident repeatedly pinged passes into the front three of Romelu Lukaku, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford. "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".

- Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's opener was the first goal Manchester United had conceded in 535 minutes of Premier League football, since Harry Kane's strike at White Hart Lane in May.

United scored 10 goals without reply in its three victories before the worldwide break but came unstuck against a team that has already beaten Arsenal this season. At the second attempt the Belgian scored his fourth league goal this term.

"It was a tough game tonight", he said.

Manchester United's ideal start to the Premier League season came to an end today after they failed to pick up three points against Stoke City, in a 2-2 draw with the Potters. United might have grabbed a late triumph but Lukaku snatched at a close-range chance and Pogba hooked over.

"I think it's a bit lazy of people to keep on reverting to that "Stoke are a physical team" thing".
