José Mourinho takes aim at Manchester United’s board

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng is Mourinho's first choice, but has reportedly phoned the Portuguese coach to tell him he won't be joining. "I think they are two players who have quality and they could help me a lot".

"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".

Nonetheless Mourinho was pleased with his team's display, singling out Pogba and Shaw for particular praise, and the overall spirit. Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.

Leicester responded well though with new signing James Maddison forcing a fine save out of United keeper David De Gea as the visitors gave Mourinho's side plenty to think about. "Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt".

The midfielder who amassed a total of 718 appearances for the club questioned the Portuguese manager's idea of a "new-look" for United, saying former manager Sir Alex Ferguson has already left the club with a ideal recipe for success.

Some of those World Cup stars returned early in order to help the squad prepare for tonight's match. Pressed on whether there would be incomings or outgoings at Old Trafford, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no".

Neither side were able to put out their strongest side with players returning from the World Cup and Vardy, Lukaku and Young among those on the bench, while Andreas Pereira played in midfield for Mourinho.

'Paul was fantastic. His contribution was wonderful.

It was the first game back with United for Pogba after his World Cup-winning exploits, and he said it was challenge to find his form before eventually giving way to substitute Marouane Fellaini in the 84th minute. 'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it.

In May, the world-class Spanish goalkeeper won Manchester United's Player of the Year award for the fourth time in five seasons.

It's clear that Mourinho and Pogba don't always have the best relationship but the French midfielder is a huge talent and someone who could play a key part in bringing trophies back to Old Trafford.

Leicester will hope this is a good time to play the Manchester giants as they have a number of players injured or not match fit so Claude Puel will be hoping to take home at least a point this evening.
