Three things Manchester United learned in win over Leicester City

12 August, 2018, 04:15 | Author: Tommie Newton
  • Jose Mourinho

"I have the foundations to do that here with the manager and my team-mates at Manchester United".

"I know that Paul doesn't resist for 90, the same with Fred. But he just lifts it over [Leicester goalkeeper] Kasper Schmeichel and when you do that in the upper part of the net keepers never get them".

Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw inspired Manchester United to an opening-day victory as they ignored background noise and their deadline-day frustration to overcome Leicester.

The path to the three points began with a Paul Pogba penalty kick just two minutes in after a hand ball, and the World Cup victor with France made no mistake, finishing calmly into the far post. 'The manager was inside, the physio, the kitman, we were all a group. "Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis", said Pogba.

Quizzed about the conversation with Sanchez by Sky Sports after the 2-1 win, Pogba said: "We don't really have one [a designated penalty taker]".

"I won't be full from a World Cup".

Mourinho: Wait to see if Man Utd can contend
Midfielder Fred arrived for big money but he was the only major new signing as Mourinho's appeals for fresh defensive blood went unheeded.

"He looks fed up and with what has come up from the America trip I don't see him lasting the season".

Pogba endured a turbulent season at Old Trafford last term and was dropped for a crucial Champions League tie with Sevilla in favour of 21-year-old Scott McTominay. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

Mourinho said that he had no choice but to hand a start to Pogba after Ander Herrera's injury.

"But I told the players we had very good periods, we had lots of glimpses of the football we wanted to play". "We have Paul with nine days training, Rashford with 11 days training, Fellaini with nine days training and of course we will be in a better condition, I don't remember in my career to be so much in trouble to make changes, because I want to make five or six [substitutions] and I have only three". I always love the club.

Jose Mourinho showed his disappointment over the club's transfer activity this summer again as he said he should be described as Manchester United's "head coach" rather than manager. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very odd run-up for his penalty.

Yet, despite Mourinho's earlier warning that United face a "difficult" season after failing to be back him in the transfer market, a winning start did brighten the mood around Old Trafford.
