InternationalEPL: Stoke's Allen strikes late to deny Manchester United


[dropcap]A spirited [/dropcap]Stoke Cityperformance deniedManchester United as Joe Allenpounced late to score for the second consecutive week and secure a 1-1 Premier Leaguedraw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

United thought they had done enough to win when substitute Anthony Martial put them ahead on 69 minutes, two minutes after coming off the bench, with a curling shot from the edge of the area that beat Stoke’s excellent keeper Lee Grant.

 But Allen, who should have scored earlier, was on hand after David De Gea fumbled a Glen Johnson effort and Jonathan Walters’ shot came back off the bar.
