Stoke City 1-1 Manchester United

Wayne Rooney scored a 94th-minute free-kick to become Manchester United's all-time record goalscorer and rescue a point at Stoke City.

Rooney, on as a substitute, curled the ball into the top corner to overtake Sir Bobby Charlton's tally and reach 250 goals for the Red Devils.

United had fallen behind when Juan Mata inadvertently deflected an Erik Pieters cross into his own net.

Mata missed a presentable chance to equalise from five yards and Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant denied Marouane Felliani and Paul Pogba

United substitute Marcus Rashford came close and Jesse Lingard hit the bar before Rooney struck to stretch United's unbeaten league run to 13 matches.
