Manchester United fans pleased with Paul Pogba's performance vs Leicester City

The winners and losers as Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten record is upheld by Luke Shaw

The winners and losers as Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten record is upheld by Luke Shaw

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation. "That's football management. I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches".

We have big and multi-functional coaching staffs, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.

"I think Mr [Richard] Scudamore must be happy because it's a good way to start the Premier League".

"It was not easy to manage the game from the touchline, but I told the players we had good periods, lots of glimpses of the type of football we wanted to play".

"In the Premier League, we must get used to playing teams with the same quality we have", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

Anthony Martial is believed to be one of them but the United forward is going nowhere, nor is compatriot Paul Pogba amid reported interest from Barcelona and supposed tensions with Mourinho.

Pogba got the side off to the ideal start, netting from the penalty spot inside three minutes, while Luke Shaw netted the decisive second goal late on.

Pogba assures Man Utd he wants to stay
After a £52m deal was struck with Shakhtar Donetsk before the World Cup, the Brazilian midfielder agreed to join Man United. Pogba overruled Alexis Sanchez when United were awarded an early penalty despite the protestations of his teammate.

Bellamy feels that Mourinho has allowed the World Cup to sway his thinking somewhat, which he claims is out of character for the Portuguese. "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was unbelievable".

'He is the first choice, ' added Mourinho.

"I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us". "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".

Both sides´ top scorers from last season, Romelu Lukaku and Vardy, started on the bench after their World Cup exertions and were introduced for the final quarter.

'The manager puts names out, after that it is how we feel, ' he said. "I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies".

But Pogba also had his say after the game, writing on Instagram: "I'll always give my best for the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on". They were trying to get it done before the World Cup but before a ball was kicked they had it done.
