The Premier League is back with a 2-1 win for Manchester United over Leicester City at Old Trafford.

"I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches".

"I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in", he said.

We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games. The Foxes spent the summer upgrading their defense, signing Jonny Evans and Ricardo Pereira to shore up a defense that allowed 60 goals last season, the fifth most in the Premier League.

'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.

"We play against a team that invest more than us. Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard". "We just want to go up and that's it".

"I won't be full from a World Cup", the new captain told Sky Sports following the game.

Symptoms include high fever, convulsions and muscle weakness, and the illness can put someone in a comatose state. Prior to this year, CT has seen 134 cases with three fatalities, the DPH said.

Mourinho and Man United kick off their 2018/19 Premier League campaign at home to Leicester City on Friday night.

Mourinho's enthusiasm for England's World Cup hero wasn't shared by the club, who had no intention of stumping up close to £75m for Maguire.

Wearing the captain's armband, Pogba got the scoring started with a third-minute penalty and generally impressed in the centre of the pitch, but it was his ability to keep going for 80 minutes despite a lack of a pre-season that Mourinho focused on in his post-match news conference. But the players gave everything, they gave what they had.

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. The manager has names but after, it's how we feel. I want to play [Anthony] Martial for [Juan] Mata or Alexis but I couldn't.

"Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left-back's display.

The former Juventus player also indicated that he is ready to stay at United instead of pushing for a move to Spain by saying he wants to win the Premier League. I am someone who likes challenges and wants to progress and you have to leave it behind now.
