Stoke make history at Old Trafford

03 October 2016, 08:07

Manchester - Manchester United's stumbles in the Premier League continued Sunday with a 1-1 home draw against struggling Stoke, which left Old Trafford with a point for the first time in 36 years.

United, which has won just one of its last four league games, took the lead in the 69th minute through Anthony Martial's curling strike — two minutes after he came on as a substitute.

Joe Allen grabbed an 82nd-minute equalizer for Stoke following a rare mistake by David de Gea, who fumbled a long-range shot to allow Jon Walters to scoop a cross against the bar before Allen smashed home from close range.

United failed to beat an opponent that started the day in last place, still hasn't won in seven games in the league this season, and had lost on its last 13 visits to Old Trafford dating back to 1980.

Jose Mourinho's team created plenty of chances but faded in the second half, less than three days after a similar lineup played in the Europa League. Stoke was also thankful for a superb display by 33-year-old goalkeeper Lee Grant, making only his second appearance in the Premier League.
