Carrick looks for the run of Hernandez with a clever ball but Shawcross is there to head clear. Stoke fail to deal with Van Persie’s corner and Carrick is able to stab home from close-range past Begovic. It was such a sloppy goal to concede.
Penalty for United as Wilkinson clearly brings down Van Persie after a clever turn in the area from the Dutchman. Van Persie slots it home into the bottom-right corner. The Dutchman finally ends his goal drought and is clearly delighted in doing so.
