Jack Collison came off the bench to score the winner deep into first-half injury time after being found by fellow substitute Ricardo Vaz Te.

Andy Carroll and Ryan Shawcross had gone down to the ground in the run-up to the goal and Pulis believes the Stoke defender had been fouled.

He told Sky Sports: "We're disappointed with their goal. Ryan goes to step in front of him and Carroll pulls his shirt and pulls him down.

"Like I say, we're really, really disappointed that the referee has not given a free-kick there."

Stoke were also denied two second-half penalty appeals when Cameron Jerome was challenged by Joey O'Brien in the box and the ball hit Guy Demel on the hand late on.

Pulis added: "The second one definitely hit his hand. But if we go to the game, forget the referee, I thought we huffed and puffed, I didn't think we got enough quality into the box.

"Playing with strikers today, they need a little bit more service than what we've given them and we just didn't get the crosses in to service them.

"People criticise the forwards not scoring goals but they've got to have good service.

He added: "We've gone a little bit flat without a question of a doubt but we'll keep going."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
