The Red Devils open their UEFA Champions League campaign at home to Basel on Tuesday before welcoming Everton to Old Trafford in their return to Premier League action next Sunday.

"[Jones missing Tuesday] These things are a part of the game, he's playing well for us, he's probably exhausted after two matches with the worldwide team but he can not play Tuesday so is good that he gets his rest and it is an opportunity for Lindelof and [Chris] Smalling".

The performance of players like Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba speaks volumes about the improvements to Mourinho's side so far this season. It was the Cameroonian's first goal for Stoke and the first United had conceded this season. In fact, the hosts levelled only five minutes later with Choupo-Moting capitalising on some poor defending to head in his brace from a corner. Pogba celebrated, but it will go down as Rashford's second goal in two games.

Gareth Bale on Real Madrid bench
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has confirmed to Cadena SER that Isco is expected to sign a new deal in the coming days. Barca could move four points clear of Real with victory at home to Espanyol later on Saturday.

Stoke's first goal highlights one particular problem for Mourinho.

Darmian was brought in to replace Daley Blind but looked uncomfortable from the opening few minutes. He played at centre-back for the Under-23s against Arsenal on Friday night.

- Mark Hughes has become only the second manager to go unbeaten in four consecutive Premier League managerial clashes with Jose Mourinho, after Ronald Koeman (5 games). But Hughes has made some shrewd signings in Fletcher and Choupo-Moting, both free transfers, while getting Jese on loan from Paris Saint-Germain and borrowing Kurt Zouma from Chelsea. Former United man, Mame Biram Diouf, was overlapping and creating chances for Jese and Choupo-Moting, who failed to hit the target on both occasions.

They shouted slogans until police reached the spot. "We have detained 10 people, including a gardener and drivers and conductors". Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit said, "This is a very shocking incident that an innocent child is being murdered in school".

His first opportunity saw the forward race on to a throughball and test Jack Butland from 16 yards, before forcing an even better stop from the goalkeeper with a controlled effort which looked destined for the bottom-right corner.

There will not have been one Stoke fan pining for Marko Arnautovic after watching Choupo-Moting.

Victor Lindelof is yet to be handed his first Premier League start and judging by the form of Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, the Swede is likely to have to wait a bit longer. Arsenal have already found out how hard it is here.

When is the Mi Note 3 release date?
But prices are always higher from Chinese importers, though typically still cheaper than United Kingdom flagships. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has revealed that the Mi Mix 2 won't be the only device making its debut at the event.

This draw with Stoke - an entertaining affair for neutrals - taught us a few new things: Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are not, after all, the flawless defensive partnership; Ander Herrera's role is unclear; United can be exposed on their left hand side. They are still waiting.
