The home side were quick out of the blocks and Zlatan Ibrahimovic was through on goal after 90 seconds, but he saw his shot brilliantly saved by Lee Grant, who also saved a second effort from the Swede.

Mark Hughes side did create a chance of their own but Geoff Cameron fired weakly at David de Gea before Paul Pogba shot wide after a flowing move when he should have at least hit the target.


Grant was called into action again when he made a superb point blank save from Jesse Lingard from an Ibrahimovic cross as the Potters struggled to hold on until the break.

In the second half Jose Mourinho brought on Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial and he was rewarded just two minutes later when Martial curled a lovely shot into the top corner after the ball broke into his path.

The away side equalised with eight minutes to go when de Gea made a mess of a weak shot from Glen Johnson and Joe Allen slammed home following a scramble to earn a valuable point, after Pogba had rattled the bar with a late close-range header.
