"I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the European Championship so there are more to win", he said.

The 2018-19 Premier League season began on Friday with a single match.

"Of course, it will be a hard season for everybody".

All does not appear well behind the scenes, despite Mourinho saying on the eve of the Leicester match that when the media "repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that (is) repeated 1,000 times".

Pogba was not the only United player to impress me.

"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". I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies. That is the way I think football is going. It depends on the music, but words for me don't come easy. Martial in the last 20 minutes could have given us the second goal but I couldn't make that change.

"In this moment, words are not important. You will see which teams are candidates".

Manchester United fans pleased with Paul Pogba's performance vs Leicester City
They were trying to get it done before the World Cup but before a ball was kicked they had it done. I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches".

Leicester defender Harry Maguire was a target, but a £60m United bid was apparently thrown out.

Misgivings over Jerome Boateng's fitness and Bayern Munich's reluctance to do a loan deal ruled that option out, while Atletico Madrid were contacted about Diego Godin but it quickly became evident that the move was a no-go.

The source also suggests that United will continue their pursuit for Tottenham's Alderweireld and Chelsea's Willian in the January window. United were interested in signing Raphael Varane of Real Madrid and were looking to splash over £100m for the World Cup victor.

United never got into full flow in attack but when they did threaten, it was down Leicester's right.

'Of course it makes me proud, it makes me happy to wear this (armband) at a big club like Manchester United, ' he said.

Given the pressure on him at times over the last few seasons, with questions of his physical condition and mentality, Shaw will be delighted to have scored. But it's the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it's the same.

Although he waned towards the end of the game, Pogba took his penalty very well early on to put United 1-0 up and played a number of unsafe passes into United's forwards as the Red Devils looked to counter-attack in the second half.
