Manchester United vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report

Manchester United vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report

The French World Cup victor was made captain for United last night and he scored an early penalty in the 2-1 win over Leicester City, the opening Premier League game of the new season.

A day after Woodward failed to deliver the centre back that the manager desperately wanted, Mourinho laid bare his frustrations with United's executive vice-chairman, claiming that teams will no longer fear playing them if they do not spend more.

Thursday's transfer deadline came and went without United adding one or two more players to the squad, something Mourinho believes they badly needed.

"We knew we were not going to be fit, 100 per cent, but the aim and most important thing was to start well the Premier League and we did that". Over, it's finished, the market is closed. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".

"In the periods Leicester were stronger we played as a team and coped well". 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.

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

"And of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup - because it's something that, in a competition like that, every player trains a lot - and he was very confident". Pogba was a monster. "I love the club".

Despite talk of wanting a new £350,000 deal to have parity with Alexis Sanchez, Pogba - on around £200,000- a-week - insists his life is about happiness not money.

Mourinho's first change against Claude Puel's men saw him replace Marcus Rashford with Romelu Lukaku, while he introduced Fellaini and McTominay to shore things up in the midfield.

'It's easier for a player to be on the same page with all the group, ' he said.

"[Paul] was very good". I was fantastic spirit, and there were periods of very good football.

United will be back in action next Sunday when they travel to Falmer Stadium to take on Brighton & Hove Albion.

That was down to the organisation and discipline of the senior players that Mourinho could call upon, and how hard they worked together as a unit when they did not have the ball.

"To concede the goal after the first seconds of the game, we need to correct this and not concede early".
