    Video caption: Stoke 2-2 Manchester United: Jose Mourinho ends interview after handshake question

    Jose Mourinho walks out of his interview with Steve Wilson after taking issue with a question about his refusal to shake Mark Hughes's hand, following their 2-2 draw at Stoke.

  11. 'We showed character'

    Stoke 2-2 Man Utd

    Stoke City

    Stoke captain Darren Fletcher, speaking to BT Sport: "What a team performance. The work rate and the attitude was great. We went 2-1 down and came back again.

    "We showed a lot of character. Choupo-Moting deserved his goals just for his work-rate alone.

    "We showed confidence and played some good football on the ball. We have had a good start to the season because we have had some difficult games."

  12. 'Stoke were superb'

    Stoke 2-2 Man Utd

    Mike Pejic

    Former Stoke defender on BBC Radio Stoke

    Darren Fletcher showed absolutely superb leadership right until the end. In the second period, that was one of the reasons Stoke matched United's midfield.

    Full marks to Stoke. That was absolutely superb. They kept Romelu Lukaku quiet and Paul Pogba found it hard to breakthrough as well.

  13. Envelope update

  14. 'De Gea will be disgusted'

    Stoke 2-2 Man Utd

    Mike Pejic

    Former Stoke defender on BBC Radio Stoke

    Mourinho will be going absolutely nuts with Phil Jones. He tripped up over his own feet and it left the attacker unmarked.

    De Gea will be disgusted after making that world class save just before.

    Stoke 1-2 Man Utd

    Mike Pejic

    Former Stoke defender on BBC Radio Stoke

    Wow. What a reaction save that was. That was absolutely world class. There was no time to think about that other than spontaneous reaction and he did enough to push it over the bar.

  16. Post update

    Stoke 1-1 Man Utd

    Mike Pejic

    Former Stoke defender on BBC Radio Stoke

    I can see Mourinho voicing his opinions to the United players and waving his finger. You can see why he's not happy because Stoke have had most of the possession so far in the second half.

  17. Post update

    Stoke 1-1 Manchester United

    Mike Pejic

    Former Stoke defender on BBC Radio Stoke

    After the first 10 minutes we have barely seen Romelu Lukaku. It wouldn't surprise me if he gets the hook for the second-half - even if he did cost £75m.

    These players' positions are up for competition.
