For the first time in Premier League history Stoke came out victorious against manchester United with a Michael Carrick own goal and a Charlie Adam thunderbolt, either side of a Robin van Persie finish securing three points for Mark Hughes. The Red Devils may have had Rooney, Mata and RVP, but, as our Twitter reports shows, it was not a good day to be a follower of the champions
Mata starts, and the fans predict big things
Van Persie, Rooney and Mata. If we don’t win this we dont deserve to play in Europe #MUFC

Despite not doing any late deadline day deals, Moyes wasn’t looking fresh on the sidelines

Although attackers are much talked abut at United, it was Jones performing most notably
Jones is a tank. Fearless. #mufc

But the Red Devils’ midfield was still struggling
This just in: #mufc ‘s midfield has been overrun by a small gaggle of traffic cones

CHARLIEEEE ADAAAAAMMMMMM – the Scot’s free-kick goes in off of Michael Carrick
Unlucky deflection off Michael Carrick, but he should’ve done loads better #MUFC

Adam’s deflected free-kick a goal befitting the first half. It’s been dreadful. Admittedly the wind not helped.

From bad to worse for United
Very unlucky. Jones with a nasty looking injury. Get well jones. pic.twitter.com/VUwvyBn7dJ

0-1 and now Jones joined the injury list. Definitely we’re not having luck this season.

HT – fans call for changes
Moyes play 4-1-3-2. Mata must be behind rooney and RVP. #mufc
— J (@PharoKing) February 1, 2014
RVP starts the second 45 minutes well with a fine finish
mata assist, van persie goal…another please
— Rooney Van Mata (@rowmanne) February 1, 2014
That will be the most hated goal by people from LONDON. MATA assist and Van Persie scored. if you know what i mean :p #MUFC

This wasn’t in the script…, Adam makes it 2-1 with a worldie!
Incredible Adam goal against #united !brilliant left foot!
— Raj Sunder (@rajsunder) February 1, 2014
The magic touch of Charlie Adam’s left foot is back… that was his routine goal at Blackpool.

United fans grow more frustrated
THIS IS JUST RIDICULOUS. #MUFC
— Tom Chambers (@LaSpecialJuan) February 1, 2014
This is awful, we’re creating nothing! #MUFC

It ends 2-1 to Stoke, who register their first EVER Premier League win against Manchester United
— Espen Skarbø (@espenskarbo) February 1, 2014
Cleverly is just a poor man’s Charlie Adam. #MUFC
— #CFCInfinix (@Emmaknickles) February 1, 2014
At times, MUFC’s defending has looked like me playing FIFA 14. Yes, that comical. Top 4 very unlikely.

But lets have some love for Stoke!
