Manchester United are finally starting to look like themselves again, and the turn in form couldnt have come quick enough for manager Jose Mourinho or their fans. Terrence Brooks Jersey .Theyll try to keep that form going against struggling Stoke City at Old Trafford on Sunday.After starting with three wins from three and two clean sheets, the Red Devils (4-0-2) lost three consecutive matches, causing some pundits to question whether The Special One had lost his touch. But fortunes change quickly in the Premier League and all it took was a visit from defending champion Leicester City last weekend to seemingly put things right.United collected goals from unlikely sources in defender Chris Smalling and Juan Mata, favored in place of Wayne Rooney. Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba also found the net in the 4-1 victory.They then followed with a 1-0 win over Zorya Luhansk on Thursday in Europa League play courtesy of a lone 69th-minute strike from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Its not often United find themselves playing Europa matches instead of Champions League fixtures, but Mourinho stressed that victory is still vital.The game was difficult but it was important to win, he said.Just days after speculation swirled about Rooneys future with the club, Mourinho commented on the England internationals contribution to Thursdays victory.He was laughing and said he made a great assist. He gave me what the team needed at the time, which was a second presence in the box, Mourinho said.Hes more of a striker than Juan (Mata), and Juan went more to the right-hand side (when Wayne came on). We started the game with a very good team, and I also had players on the bench to give me solutions for everything.Stoke City (0-2-4), meanwhile, remain desperate for points while entering this clash second from the bottom in the table. Mark Hughes squad has looked lifeless on the attack and equally shaky at the back, having conceded four goals three times already this season.Following a 4-1 rout at the hands of Crystal Palace on Sept. 18, the Potters claimed a point in last weeks 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion. They probably should have taken all three as a 77th-minute strike from Joe Allen was canceled out by a stoppage-time equaliser from Salomon Rondon.Despite another frustrating result, Hughes chose to take the positives from his sides performance.We are a little bit upset, clearly, because we totally deserved to win the game, Hughes said. We just lost a little bit of concentration right at the end, which can happen, and unfortunately we have been punished for that once again.To be honest we were comfortable dealing with their balls into the box for the best part, and I honestly thought we were going to see it out -- our efforts on the day deserved to be rewarded with three points.Both sides claimed home victories in this fixture last season, but history is certainly not on the Potters side. Stoke have never taken a point at Old Trafford, losing all eight Premier League visits by a combined score of 25-6. Marcus Maye Jersey . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. Steve McLendon Jersey .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. http:///...ordan-jenkins-jersey .  Breaking three of his own world records on his way to winning in Paris, Chan silenced the critics and left the audiences standing in appreciation and awe. CLEVELAND -- LeBron James scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, Kyrie Irving matched a career high with 12 assists and the refreshed Cleveland Cavaliers finally put away Los Angeles in the fourth quarter, beating the young Lakers 119-108 on Saturday night.Kevin Love had 27 points and a season-high 17 rebounds, leading the Cavs to their sixth win in seven games.The Cavs were back at full strength after coach Tyronn Lue left James, Love and Irving behind earlier this week for a game in Memphis, a decision that sparked some criticism as fans were denied a chance to see the three stars and Cleveland lost.Irving looked more like himself in his first game in a week, adding 21 points as the Cavs improved to 19-6.James, who was late getting onto the floor before the game, scored 26 points and needs two more to pass Moses Malone for eighth place on the career scoring list.Nick Young made eight 3-pointers and scored a season-high 32 for the Lakers, who snapped an eight-game losing streak on Friday in Philadelphia and were a headache for the defending NBA champions all night.Jordan Clarkson added 20 points and Los Angeles rookie Brandon Ingram missed a triple-double by one point and an assist.Channing Frye and James each hit a 3 to help Cleveland to a 95-86 lead early in the fourth quarter. The Lakers refused to give in and were still within 110-105 when James drained another 3-pointer with 2:32 left as Cleveland closed the game on a 10-3 run.Los Angeles first-year coach Luke Walton wanted his team to come out swinging. Nobody is expecting us to win. The Lakers did just that, taking an eight-point lead after one quarter and outworking the Cavs, who werent connected on either end of the ffloor. Morris Claiborne Jersey. Cleveland briefly turned up its defensive intensity to offset its sluggish start, opening the second quarter with a 15-2 run.The Lakers, though, hung around by making 16 3-pointers and had a chance for an upset before James took over in the fourth.TIP-INSLakers: G DAngelo Russell was inactive with a sore left knee that has bothered him most of the season. He scored 15 in Fridays win. ... Walton was an assistant with Golden State last season and said he has yet to watch Clevelands Game 7 win in the NBA Finals. You dont get over losing Game 7, he said. Youre happy for the guys here, but it sticks with you for the rest of your life. ... Walton spent two seasons playing with the Cavs, who were rebuilding in 2011-13 after James left for Miami. I had a blast here. We didnt win a lot, he said. But the fans were great and packed the arena every night. Good memories for me.Cavaliers: Cleveland has won five straight over the Lakers. ... The Cavs have won 25 of their last 29 at home against Western Conference teams. ... Lue said he and general manager David Griffin are still discussing roster options after C Chris Birdman Andersen sustained a season-ending -- and likely career-ending -- knee injury in practice Friday. The Cavs have been looking to add a backup point guard, but may now also be in the market for a big. Lue said the Cavs will miss Andersens positive energy.
