Well, well, well!
What started as another bad day for Man United fans has turned into a great one, with their former striker Mame Biram Diouf scoring the winner for Stoke against United rivals Manchester City.
And what a goal it was!
The 50 Cent lookalike picked the ball up on the halfway line, nutmegged Vincent Kompany, and finished past Joe Hart, who should have done better, beaten at his near post.
Credit to Mark Hughes: said and done: he said he was coming to City to win, and that’s exactly what his team have done.
They rode their luck, though, as they were very lucky not to concede a penalty late on, Yaya Toure wrongly booked for diving.
United fans are now hailing Diouf as a United legend – en passant, he’s a quality player, and he never really got a fair chance at Old Trafford.
At the risk of stating the obvious, #mcfc have missed Pablo Zabaleta today.

87) Yaya Toure is booked for simulation inside the area.

Diouf is a true United legend for that goal. Lol. Had Kompany looking like Evans.

That is the Mame Diouf, Manchester United must have seen. What an outstanding individual effort. Magnificent pace.

Wow! Blatant Manchester City penalty turned down. Toure wrongly accused of diving. Mind you, Stoke should've had one in the first half.
