Stoke had looked on course to gain a point after Tuncay’s excellent curling effort with less than ten minutes left levelled proceedings. But United’s Javier Hernandez had other ideas, as the Mexican slotted home from close range with just three minutes remaining to steal the victory.
Sorensen felt hard done by as Stoke had battled back superbly to equalise and insisted his side performed well enough to get something from the game.
“It’s hugely disappointing because we thought we did enough to get something from the game,” he told Stoke City's official website.
“It’s like last week at Bolton, we shouldn’t have lost the game and we did, so we will have to have a sit down and have a look at what has gone wrong.
“I thought today we took the game to United and fully deserved a point. Fair enough, they had chances on the counter-attack, but I thought it was us who was asking the majority of the questions.
“You need that little bit of luck to fall for you when you are playing against the top teams like [Manchester] United, but things just didn’t go for us.”
As Stoke chased the game, Sorensen even found himself in the unusual position of being in the United's box at a corner:
“I just thought it was the right thing to do. The manager had a little bit of a go at me in the dressing room, but at the time I was desperate to try and get something from the game – that’s what i felt we deserved,” added the Dane.
