WATCH: Martial Goal And De Gea Mistake As United Are Held To 1-1 Draw By Stoke City

Opportunity wasted...

Martial

The starting XI was announced with Wayne Rooney on the bench once more...

A bright start saw United denied repeatedly by Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant...

0-0 at half-time but one former manager was looking on the bright side...

Ander Herrera could easily have been sent off at the start of the second half...

While debate raged over which substitutes could make a difference...

José Mourinho bit the bullet by introducing Rooney and Anthony Martial...

And they both made an instant impact...

Before it all went pear-shaped when Joe Allen equalised 13 minutes later... 

So it finished 1-1 and the general consensus was that United wasted an opportunity...

Next up, two ominous-looking away fixtures at Liverpool and Chelsea.
