Stoke 2 Manchester United 2

Stoke 2 Manchester United 2

After drawing with the tenth placed team, a furious Mourinho walked away without even shaking the hands of Hughes, who had reportedly told the United boss during the match to "f**k off" when Mourinho had entered his technical area during a foul.

Hughes is no stranger to being snubbed, having previously been ignored by Tony Pulis and Arsène Wenger, among others, but what are the other famous handshakes in football that didn't happen? It all started in 2009 with Sam Allardyce.

"It makes it look like it's my fault, my problem, and your question is not correct, I'm sorry".

"It's a negative. Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don't take negative results too kindly".

"In fairness, I've got history with non-handshakes so maybe it's me!"

I suspect Mourinho will regard Saturday's 2-2 draw as two points dropped, thinking United did enough to win but were let down by defensive errors.

Mourinho brushed aside the issue in his post-match press conference, though he was keen to stress he was not in the wrong when asked before his press conference.

"I think it probably is a fair result", Mourinho was quoted as saying by SkySports News.

Jose Mourinho reverted to a 4-3-3 with Ander Herrera in midfield and Juan Mata on the bench for Manchester United's trip to Stoke City.

"One team wanted to win, another team wanted to draw".

The United boss went on to say that Stoke "fought hard" for the point and they got it but he felt that his team's "performance was more than enough for the point".

"I'm not disappointed with the players, I'm not critical with them", he told reporters.

Though Mourinho might draw comfort from the hint his team gave of their own spirit in their response to falling behind, he will appreciate how far they are from the finished article in their failure to see out victory once a lead had been restored.
