It is understood that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho snubbed Stoke City boss Mark Hughes twice after he tried to shake his hand.

After trailing to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's first half goal, United were on course for their fourth successive league win until the Cameroon forward punished a slip from Phil Jones to head his second of the game.

For Manchester United, meanwhile, manager Jose Mourinho makes three changes from their win over Leicester City before the global break. Marcus Rashford impressed for England and that is likely to have influenced Jose Mourinho's decision to reinstate the player in place of Anthony Martial.

"I know after national teams there are no miracles or injuries or fatigue or lack of concentration and we had a little bit of everything".

"They would see it as an opportunity to bring someone in who can lead the line for the next five to 10 years".

We are four matches into the Premier League season, and the table is starting to take shape.

"I'm not sure why he didn't want to shake my hand, I didn't think there were any issues".

"A draw was a fair result".

In one of his by-now frequent and thinly veiled critiques of his former club Chelsea, Mourinho pointed out that his successor Antonio Conte employed a defence-first, counter- attacking style to win last season's title.

"They defended a lot and it's becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending. But they did well and physically they were very strong and they probably deserved the point".

"Your question is a bad question, it's really a bad question, because it looks like it's my fault, it's my problem, and your question is not correct".

And Mourinho, speaking after the game, was quick to point out which team displayed more motivation towards the latter stages.
