Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener

Manchester United ended up 19 points adrift of their derby rivals, while Mourinho was criticised for his side's unadventurous style of play in the Premier League.

Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot.

Tottenham became the first Premier League team since the inception of the transfer window to go all summer without a new signing, as the deadline passed this evening with no Spurs incomings. I like my group.

Mourinho was left irritated by the lack of signings, says the Guardian, as his bosses believed the targets were no better than the players he already had. "I have to focus on the players I have and the next few matches". "It is a lie, repeated 1,000 times".

Chelsea let the Serbian defensive midfielder leave for £35m last summer - and he enjoyed a remarkably consistent debut season at Old Trafford.

"Like always we want to keep improving and keep bringing trophies to Manchester United because success motivates us".

Dez Bryant nows declares he's coming to Cleveland for visit
Cowboys Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman said he believes Bryant will play in the National Football League this season. The CBS Sports Instagram page accumulated a few of those tweets, noting Bryant's interest in the Browns.

According to the Daily Mirror, United chiefs have told Mourinho that the club needs to be more like their neighbours - both on and off the pitch.

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his worldwide future.

Pogba, made skipper for the night, answered Jose Mourinho's call to start the game despite only four days of training but showed no ring-rustiness in a remarkable man of the match performance that underlined why United refused to sell him to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Significantly, Pogba was made captain in the absence of Antonio Valencia and he started with some assurance, giving United a slightly fortuitous early lead.

Nigerian global Kelechi Iheanacho is likely to lead the line and will be relishing the chance against Manchester United.

United fans were particularly thrilled for the player after he finally got off the mark.
