Mourinho's tactics get Man United off to the ideal start

Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was awesome".

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.

"And of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup - because it's something that, in a competition like that, every player trains a lot - and he was very confident". But I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League, with the market closed, I find myself in a situation that I thought I was not going to be in, but I think it's the last time I speak about it'.

Pogba was a real leader with and without the ball on Friday night and with this added pressure of being captain, it seems to have brought the best out of a player who's never lacked confidence. "I don't remember in my career to be in so much in trouble to make my changes because I wanted to make five or six and I could only make three". I came in the academy, I grew up.

Paul Pogba cast fresh doubt over his Manchester United future by saying he would get fined if he really opened up about his happiness.

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was wonderful", Mourinho said after taking his captain off late in the game.

All of the pre-match coverage for the seasons opening game was exclusively focused on Manchester United and their bizarrely underwhelming transfer window.

"I ran the London marathon in April past and it fell on the same weekend as the FA Cup Semi Final against Spurs, so I took him there and that was his first game".

"It was very good to go out there, to feel the fans supporting us and to play at home in Old Trafford is always good", he told MUTV".

Matteo Darmian, hoping for a return to Italy before the end of the month, tested Schmeichel at the near post early into a second half that United started with bundles of possession but few clear-cut chances.
