Manchester United played poorly and looked like they were gonna lose all three points away at Stoke after Mata scored an own goal in the first half.
But then from nowhere Wayne Rooney stepped up and scored a beautiful freekick in stoppage time, which made hime the lone top goalscorer of all time in Manchester United.
OWN GOAL BY MATA
Mourinho replaced Carrick and Martial with Fellaini and Mata, and United got off to a poor start. Stoke pressed high and it was an even game in the first twenty minutes, then Stoke scored. Erik Pieters ran down the left and crossed low into the middle. Unfortunately the ball hit Mata and went underneath De Gea. 1-0 to Stoke, not a good start.
SUPERMISS BY MATA
Juan Mata didn't have his best half. First he scored an own goal and in the 32th minute he missed an obvious goal. Zlatan got the ball on the left, advanced and perfectly found Mata on the far post and he should have just tapped it in but overhit the ball and it went over the bar. Manchester United pushed for a second and created several chances, but 1-0 at halftime.
FRUSTRATING SECOND HALF
The second half was one of the most frustrating halves of the season. Stoke parked the bus completely and United had all possession, and they did create a few halfchances, but they played without finess and pace, and simply played poorly. It looked like a loss, but then four minutes into the stoppage time Rooney hit a beautiful freekick straight up into the top left corner, 1-1! Incredible ending, United got away with one point.
Rooneys goal was his 250th in the Manchester United-shirt, which made him the lone top goalscorer of all time in Manchester United.
