Manchester United's manager Jose Mourinho cut a frustrated figure once again as he reflected on two more Premier League points lost in a 1-1 draw with Stoke CityStoke-on-Trent (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Jose Mourinho wants record-breaker Wayne Rooney to help Manchester United solve a familiar problem after they failed yet again to turn their dominance into three points in a battling 1-1 draw with Stoke City. Juan Mata's own-goal gave Stoke a 19th-minute lead at the Britannia Stadium before Rooney rescued a point for the visitors deep into stoppage-time by becoming United's all-time leading scorer with his 250th goal for the English giants as he broke Bobby Charlton's longstanding club record. While quick to acclaim Rooney's "amazing achievement", Mourinho cut a frustrated figure once again as he reflected on two more Premier League points lost and the fact that any chance of United mounting a belated title challenge is receding fast.

Over two million people flooded the streets of US cities in a stunning rebuke to the new US president, including more than half a million who swarmed the streets of Los AngelesMore than two million people flooded US cities on Saturday as women opposed to Donald Trump led a peaceful, stunning rebuke against the new US president that was echoed in sister protests around the world. As a sea of demonstrators brought downtown Washington to a standstill, streaming past the White House in a joyous parade of pink "pussyhats," Trump launched a withering attack on the media, accusing it of downplaying attendance at his swearing-in a day earlier. Trump did not acknowledge the mass protests that marked his first full day in office.
