Juan Mata had a day to forget as United were held by Stoke in a physical encounter at the Bet365 Stadium.
United applied pressure consistently but Stoke proved to be up to the task as they dealt a blow to United's title ambitions. United were forced to start without Marcos Rojo through illness with Smalling coming in. Fellaini also started in place of Carrick. Stoke grabbed the lead against the run of play after Mata touched a Pieters cross past his own goalkeeper. Minutes later, Mata had a howler as he somehow skied from close range after Ibra teed him up. As the game proceeded, United created many chances, but Lee Grant saved well from the best of those attempts from Fellaini and Pogba. Lingard hit the post and United were unlucky not to be awarded a few close range free-kicks and had penalty appeals turned down. Like many matches this season, they left it late to get their breakthrough. It was sub Wayne Rooney who smashed in an injury time free-kick from the left to become United's top-scorer on 250.
