Jose Mourinho wants record-breaker Wayne Rooney to help Manchester United solve a familiar problem after it again failed to turn its dominance into three points in a 1-1 draw with Stoke City on Saturday.

Juan Mata's own-goal gave Stoke a 19th-minute lead at Britannia Stadium before Rooney rescued a point for the visitor deep into stoppage-time, becoming United's all-time leading scorer with his 250th goal for the English giant 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.
