Premier League Predictions: Man City's Liverpool test, United face Stoke


Manchester United's ideal start to the season ended with a 2-2 draw at Stoke City, whose battling performance in a see-saw game denied the leaders a fourth successive Premier League victory.

After trailing to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's first half goal, United were on course for their fourth successive league win until the Cameroon forward punished a slip from Phil Jones to head his second of the game. The Premier League giants were trashed 4-0 by Liverpool before the worldwide break and the French manager linked Arsenal's latest blow with the transfer of Oxlade Chamberlain to Anfield Road.

"I've just seen a little bit of a difference in the last camp that he was thirsty to be at the right place at the right time, to take the big moment, to control the big moment in the game".

Leaders Manchester United, meanwhile, put their 100 percent record on the line at Stoke.

United and Manchester City are the early pacesetters in the league, separated by only goal difference. "We'll never just sit back and wait for the inevitable".

Chamberlain joined Liverpool for € 38 million in the deadline day and Wenger seemed happy about the Premier League's decision to anticipate the end of the next summer transfer window: "It's not the way to work and it's uncomfortable. It is not what we came for but a point is a point".
