Stoke City boss Mark Hughes revealed Marko Arnautovic is always being told to shoot more often after his powerful strike secured a famous victory over Manchester United on Saturday.

The 26-year-old netted with an impressive effort from outside the penalty area as his side recorded a 2-0 win over Louis van Gaal’s visitors at the Britannia Stadium.

Following the game, Hughes divulged that Stoke’s coaching staff are regularly telling Arnautovic – who has scored six times in the Premier League this season – to pull the trigger more often and make the most of his talent to strike the ball at a great force.

The manager told Stoke Player: “We tell him until we are blue in the face to shoot more, to be perfectly honest, because he has great power.

“Maybe that [goal] will encourage him. He had a number of chances and could have scored more. 

“In terms of clear-cut chances, we were well ahead of United and deserved the win.”

After the morale-boosting result against United, Hughes will take Stoke to Goodison Park on Monday to play an Everton team who also have 26 points from their first 18 matches – six adrift of Tottenham in fourth place.

“We are playing well so it is a game we look forward to,” continued Hughes.

“There is a demand on Everton to go forward, be progressive and have a go so that may well play into our hands, hopefully.”
