Manchester United took the lead against the run of the play on 18 minutes when a comedy of errors in the Blues' ranks gifted the opening goal to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men. "[Marcos] Alonso was on the bench, Kante was on the bench, Giroud was on the bench, and to come to Old Trafford, even if this is not the huge Manchester United that used to scare people, it's Manchester United".

"For massive parts of the game we didn't allow them to do that". We controlled the first half hour but made some poor decisions.

"We were comfortable in the first half".

In his first outing at The Theatre of Dreams in a United shirt the most expensive defender in world football put on a solid display, keeping Frank Lampard's attacking Chelsea at bay.

But that did not stop Pogba telling reporters after United's resounding start to the season that he is still unsure about his future, even if there appears to be little prospect of the club allowing him to leave before the close of the European windows on September 2. "They pinned us back and created chances, but we settled a few nerves [in the second half]".

"The second half will give us loads of belief and confidence in the way we settled down and passed the ball around".

Abraham crashed an early drive against the United bar and Mount then tested David De Gea with an effort from distance.

"He lost it a couple of times but it doesn't matter - get on the ball and play".

After a slow start, United grew into the game thanks to a penalty from Rashford.

Two minutes later, Chelsea's defence was again exposed when Rashford timed his run to perfection, latched on to a long ball from Paul Pogba and beat keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga with a confident finish.

"Once in a while he is caught out defensively but that means he can counter attack".

That was the icing on the cake for United and, while the team remains a work in progress, the mood around Old Trafford was back to its jubilant best.
