Manchester United vs Leicester City - predicted starting XI

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has signed three players this summer

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has signed three players this summer

"He had nine days of pre-season where no training, no football, absolutely nothing".

Manchester United's number one returned from his holidays earlier than most other players due to Spain's early World Cup exit.

However, Real Madrid have been unwilling to let him leave.

Despite finishing 19 points adrift of their local rivals, Manchester United only brought in Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant over the summer transfer window.

Juan Mata has scored 4 goals in his last 4 Premier League matches against Leicester City, with Norwich being the only team against whom Mata has scored more.

"When I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - it is hard to believe that we finished second", Jose said, "because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing and finish below us look like serial winners".

Pogba is thrown straight into the starting lineup, however, and is named captain by boss Jose Mourinho for the clash at Old Trafford.

Defense ministry spokesman Mohammad Radmanish said the army helped the police and the city was under control of government forces. After a day of intense fighting, Afghan commandos and United States air strikes drove the group to the outskirts of the city.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan club is prepared to wait for the France International, but know they will need to offer a lot of money when they do eventually bid for him as there is no buyout clause in his contract.

"I have to focus on the players I have and the next few matches".

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of the people is that it's true but it's still a lie".

Jose Mourinho is "desperate" for Manchester United to get off to a winning start in the Premier League curtain-raiser on Friday night, despite bemoaning a lack of preparation time.

Schmeichel was called into action again 10 minutes into the second half, going low and to his left to keep out a Matteo Darmian line drive from distance as both teams looked to up the tempo of the match after the break.

It's clear that Mourinho and Pogba don't always have the best relationship but the French midfielder is a huge talent and someone who could play a key part in bringing trophies back to Old Trafford.

Barcelona are keen on signing Paul Pogba, but United don't want to sell. However, Mourinho's time in charge of the club has been filled with feuding with his players, ownership and the media.
