The Match: Stoke stormer

beat, but the minute United prodded and probed with purpose it brought about the breakthrough.

Move of the match Young's goal was a lesson in incisive attacking that, before that point, United had lacked. Cleverley's quick free-kick, Young's penetrative pass and, after Hernandez's lay-off, his thunderous strike was a move worthy of winning the match outright.

In the stands A bumper travelling party of Reds made the short trip down the M6, braving wind, rain, hail and the usual icy reception from the Stoke crowd. As ever, United's away fans were in fine voice, running through the full repertoire of terrace anthems, including a new Adnan Januzaj song to the tune of Gilbert O'Sullivan's Ooh-Wakka-Doo-Wakka-Day: "I want to tell you, I might as well do, about a boy who can do anything. He comes from Belgium, his name is Adnan, Januzaj, Januzaj, Januzaj."
