Steven Nzonzi scored a brilliant goal past David De Gea to temporarily level the score at Old Trafford but it wasn't to be as Juan Mata made the difference in the 2-1 loss for the Potters.
Stoke City were game opposition at times at Old Trafford on Tuesday but they just didn't have quite enough to squeeze out even a point on their travels. Bojan played another solid match and it was his dribbling move that was cleared out to Steven Nzonzi who struck it wonderfully for his goal. Second half opportunities were few and far between until stoppage time when Mame Biram Diouf (twice) and Marc Wilson had big chances repelled by David De Gea (twice) and Ashley Young.

Arsenal and Chelsea are the latest clubs to be linked to Stoke's want-away French midfielder, Steven Nzonzi.

Nzonzi handed in a transfer request after a good season for the Potters. West Ham and Norwich were interested, but Nzonzi wants to move to bigger club to enhance his international prospects (such as they are). He certainly has the physical attributes to attract Chelsea and Arsenal, but it remains to be seen if he can make the step up in quality.

Stoke City could be preparing a bid of up to 10 million pounds for Celtic's Victor Wanyama.

Wanyama could be a ready-made replacement (an upgrade even) for want-away midfielder Steven Nzonzi. Arsenal is another club that has expressed an interest in Wanyama, and the Emirates would certainly be a more glamorous destination for the Kenyan star.

"I can confirm that we have received a written transfer request from Steven Nzonzi." announced Stoke chairman Peter Coates. Nzonzi feels that he needs to move in order to boost his international chances.

Nzonzi was one of the few Stoke players to emerge from the season with much credit, and there will be clubs interested in signing him. Whether any of those clubs will be of a level that Nzonzi clearly expects (West Ham and Norwich are rumoured admirers) is another matter entirely.
