2 goals from Charlie Adam pushed Stoke City to the 6th victory for them as they overcame what was yet another disappointing match for Manchester United. David Moyes opted to go out with Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata as the main attacking outlet for his side.

The attacking department of United was very well covered but an early injury from Jonny Evans forced Moyes on making a quick substitution as Rafael Da Silva entered the pitch only after 11 minutes had passed.
