Man United lose their 100 percent record as Stoke’s £10million record signing Peter Crouch equalizes

Stoke’s £10 million record signing Peter Crouch got the equaliser in the second half with an impressive header past David de Gea. This is his first goal for his new club. You can see the video of this goal here : Stoke vs Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson was forced to draft Antonio Valencia in at right-back after Jonny Evans was injured in the warm-up, requiring Phil Jones to move into the centre. Hernandez’s night then lasted just 10 minutes after he tumbled in the penalty area under a challenge from Jonathan Woodgate – United cried penalty, though it appeared the defender had just about won the ball cleanly — and was then forced to limp off. It gave Ferguson the chance to offer Michael Owen another opportunity following his midweek double against Leeds but United missed Chicharito’s acuteness. Red Devils’ star striker Wayne Rooney missed out with a hamstring strain. However, Sir Alex Ferguson could look back with satisfaction on a point gained by a ‘world-class’ goal by Nani and three wonder saves from the much maligned David de Gea.
