Mark Froggatt was your eyes and ears for United's 3-2 win over Stoke City on Saturday. Relive the action and reaction here...

20:00 Well, that’s it for our live coverage of today’s match. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and we look forward to Wednesday when United face Norwich City in the Capital One Cup, a match that will hopefully provide as many thrills and spills as we saw this afternoon. Until then, good night.

19:45 Robin van Persie has heaped praise on his fellow goal scorers Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez, highlighting their impressing contributions against the Potters. “Wayne is a great player and great players can always play together and I think we showed that today. Hopefully we can show that again this season. Don’t forget Chicharito’s input though, he’s such a great role model to all footballers. He works so hard and I’m a really big fan of his. He came in today, he was still a bit cold but he scored the winner.”

19:20 Goal-scoring hero Javier Hernandez spoke to MUTV after the game, outlining his desire for United to build on today's morale-boosting victory. “I enjoyed it a lot because I helped the team and we got the three points because now we have won two games at home and that was the main goal that we had. We have another game against Norwich here at Old Trafford, we want to get through in the Capital One Cup and keep winning. We want to win and win and win. Hopefully, we can do that.”

18:30 Former United defender and current Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross took a moment to speak to us in the mixed zone - and he was full of respect for the Reds. "Of course, United have had their struggles so far this season, we came here with belief on the back of the results they've had, but they're still a great team and that showed in them coming back to get the victory."
