Stoke City Player Ratings In Hard Fought Draw Against Manchester United

Mark Hughes and Stoke City have got off a to a decent start and they would have loved to continue that but when big guns like United come calling, it will be a major task. A brace from Choupo Moting with United scoring one before the half time and after that gave the platform for Stoke to come away with a precious point. Here’s how the Potters have been rated:-

GK: Jack Butland – 8.5/10

Incredible on the night by saving everything that comes in his way. Reacted quick enough to avoid Zouma from making it an own goal.  A top keeper who’s only going to improve from now on.

RWB: Mame Biram Diouf – 6/10

A usual position for Diouf but he fared well against United’s attack. Should see in the coming days as to how can manage.

CB: Kurt Zouma – 7/10

He was rock solid today and tried his best to keep Lukaku at bay. Lots of positives to take though!

CB: Cameron Goeff – 6/10

Got lucky as his mistake didn’t lead to a goal. He was tidy otherwise.

CB: Kevin Wimmer – 5/10

Looked really good on his debut and maybe a few more weeks till he cements his position for good.

LWB: Erik Pieters – 6/10

He used his physical strength a lot and fouled players but remained solid as a wingback as the game wore on.

CM: Darren Fletcher – 7/10

His passes, composure and the simplicity with which he moves around was perfect.  Did tremendously well today!

 CM: Joe Allen – 6/10

Not noticeable much today but he had to get into a great positive to prevent a winner from United.

RF: Xherdan  Shaqiri – 7/10

He was trouble all evening down the right and ball control was magnificent but he just couldn’t help with the end product.

LF: Choupo Moting – 8/10

His drive looked dangerous and he got himself into two fabulous positions to score.

ST: Jese Rodriguez – 7/10

De Gea made a brilliant save from his effort and he should have scored there otherwise he had a mediocre match with not many chances.
