Bojan broke the deadlock for the hosts in the 16th minute after Stoke capitalised on confusion between United duo David De Gea and Memphis Depay.
Mark Hughes’s side were 2-0 winners against Manchester City at The Britannia earlier this month, and the star of that performance Mark Arnautovic doubled Stoke’s lead on Boxing Day.
The former Inter Milan forward fired a stunning long-range attempt past De Gea to condemn the 20-time English champions to another league defeat.
