They scored three goals in three minutes against Swansea, West Ham were comfortable for 25 minutes before throwing the towel in and, as I said before, Leicester had good chances at Old Trafford where a top quality team would have punished them. His purposeful running and attacking threat brought confidence into the way Stoke pressed forward, and he was a nightmare to handle for the defense. We were up against arguably the best side in the Premier League.

Stoke began the better. Xherdan Shaqiri took it but overhit his effort.

Stat: United have now scored from a set-piece in all four games this season.

Jose Mourinho handed starts to Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera, with Anthony Martial and Juan Mata dropping to the bench.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has provided five assists in his first three PL matches this season. One break put Lukaku in down the right and from his cross Paul Pogba backheeled the ball at Jack Butland.

Mark Hughes says a few players picked up injuries over the global break, with Kurt Zouma (ankle), Darren Fletcher and Mame Biram Diouf (both knee) all doubtful. United are the early pacesetters while Stoke have had a taste of everything in the league so, which is likely to see the visitors edge this one.

Stoke sucker-punched United with a fine Choupo-Moting strike.

The home side took the lead at the end of a first half of few chances, when Choupo-Moting fired in from close range past David De Gea. Pogba is an all-action midfielder and is capable of performing a number of roles on the pitch, but Mkhitaryan is clearly thriving when played as a no.10 and it would only be logical for Mourinho to restore him to his favored position. Subs: Martins Indi 6, Berahino 6.

United grasped the lead ten minutes into the second half, as Lukaku found the back of the net for the fourth time this season. We had similar situation previous year with Manchester City, who were not able to sustain it.

Alleged Israeli Strike Destroys Syrian Chemical Weapons Facility
The report said the Syrian Air Force had used the nerve agent Sarin in one attack, on the rebel town of Khan Sheikhoun in April. An army statement said rockets fired from Lebanese airspace targeted the site near Masyaf, killing two soldiers.

England drop Woakes for 3rd Windies Test
Quoting a text message he had received from Sachin Tendulkar, Lara referred to it as "a success the entire world needed". India is likely to begin 2018 in South Africa and is slotted to play four Tests and limited overs series.

Giants' Week 1 focus: Stop whoever Cowboys have at running back
Apparently not as Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is appealing a six-game suspension levied by Commissioner Roger Goodell. The arbitrator didn't meet the deadline to rule on Elliott's suspension, so Elliott can play this Sunday.

Joe Allen was caught in possession by Matteo Darmian at the halfway line just before the hour mark.

The weight and direction of the Armenian's pass was sublime, cutting through Stoke's defence and putting Lukaku clear.

Again, it was a lead that did not last long and again it fell to a corner.

Choupo-Moting celebrates his first of the day.

Mourinho will no doubt be proud of his players manful response to that 43rd-minute setback, though.

Arsenal put away Bournemouth 3-0 thanks largely to a brace from Danny Wellbeck and another goal from recruit Alexandre Lacazette to give Arsene Wenger's men a second win of the season. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo (both knee) remain long-term absentees, while Andreas Pereira has joined Valencia on loan since their last match.

"I think I pushed him because he was in my technical area".

After a touchline row during the 2-2 draw, Mourinho snubbed Hughes when he tried to shake his hand at the final whistle. Stoke have failed to beat United in each of their last three head-to-heads and could well come unstuck as a result. Maybe he reacted in the wrong way. "I seem to get involved in hand-shake issues!"

"I have to say it is a result I accept though". When questioned about it later, Hughes simply laughed it off but Mourinho snapped at the reporter who asked the question. Because it looks like is my fault, is my problem. It's a bad question.
