Manchester United haven't improved at all - Mourinho

Harry Maguire's value has ballooned after a strong World Cup for England

Nine Spurs players took part in the World Cup semifinals and only returned to training on Monday, with Pochettino assessing their readiness ahead of the Newcastle trip.

Pogba, fresh from his triumph in Russian Federation with France but also the subject of recent transfer speculation, was named captain by manager Jose Mourinho and took responsibility for the penalty after a handball by Daniel Amartey, slowly shuffling up before beating Kasper Schmeichel.

Daniel Amartey's handball inside the penalty area gave Pogba the chance to break the deadlock in only the 3rd minute and the World Cup winning midfielder made no mistake from 12 yards.

"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho.

Whether it were mind games or genuine woe, the Portuguese continually insisted on more additions in his pre-season press conferences and only received Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant in return.

Defender Alderweireld was a reported target for Manchester United, although no approach was made, but the Belgium worldwide would be available for £25 million next summer and could be sold to an overseas club in the coming weeks.

Victory over Leicester came just 24 hours after Woodward had come up empty-handed on deadline day despite Mourinho's demand for at least one new centre-back.

One of CNBC's sources said Musk previously discussed plans to take Tesla private with a Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund . Once Tesla is private, Jurasic said, "I don't see any way you could get back in as your typical retail investor".

That led to a pointed tip of the hat towards Leicester's summer business - which ended up exceeding that of the Red Devils. "We thought maximum (he could play) 60 minutes, but he managed 80".

"Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left-back's display. "For us it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought". That's how many points United dropped last season against teams who finished in the bottom half of the table.

"Football is changing. Probably football managers should be called more head coaches".

"We have to wait for end of November, beginning of December to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title".

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of center-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation.

"[Fred] is a midfield player, he's not a striker, not a central defender".

"It's my style of taking penalties, I've always done it", he said.
