Paul Pogba Named Manchester United Captain - Starting XI V Leicester Confirmed

Man Utd transfer news

Media speculation on Thursday suggested the reason United had not been as active as expected was down to the club's hierarchy overruling Mourinho on his primary targets.

Given the pressure on him at times over the last few seasons, with questions of his physical condition and mentality, Shaw will be delighted to have scored. "Marcus Rashford was in trouble but he played", said Mourinho.

Both sides´ top scorers from last season, Romelu Lukaku and Vardy, started on the bench after their World Cup exertions and were introduced for the final quarter.

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was awesome but the fuel was disappearing".

The Daily Telegraph adds that United's board would only sanction the signing of a world-class defender such as Varane, but refused to bring in a "lesser" player, despite Mourinho's demands. Marouane told me he couldn't give me more than 10 minutes, okay but give me 10 minutes.

The hosts got a much-needed lift after just two minutes when Daniel Amartey was harshly adjudged by referee Andre Mariner to have handled Alexis Sanchez's shot.

Although Paul is now a World Cup victor he still has plenty to prove on club level as people will look to him to lead the Red Devils to glory too.

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I chose to take it". Again, I know the words you want me to say or not to say.

Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw have come under fire from Mourinho during his time as United boss, but the duo emerged as match-winners as they scored the goals that fired the home side to a win at Old Trafford.

"I think it will be a hard season for everybody, but I think it's the last time we speak about it. I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said.

After putting in inspiring displays for France in their World Cup victory, supporters were happy to seem him recreate that for the club too.

He went on to repeat his sentiments that United are in for a tough season, after they overcame opponents who spent more cash in the summer transfer market.

De Gea made a huge stop in the first half on James Maddison, denying the young player in the box with this save.

At the pre-match press conference ahead of the Leicester clash Mourinho hit back at claims of unrest at Old Trafford, Sky Sports reports.

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".
