Paul Pogba explains penalty discussion with Alexis Sanchez during Leicester win

Share

Until tomorrow, anyway. Jose Mourinho's side recorded a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford in a game that would make you long for the World Cup.

"I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches".

'I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League with the market closed in the situation I thought I was not going to be in, ' said Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho enters his third season in charge of United looking to capture the league title. For us it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought. I enjoy the last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position in five or six years.

And when Amartey was substituted, it didn't get much better - Luke Shaw completely lost Rachid Ghezzal for his goal in the 83rd minute, while Ricardo Pereira was ineffective right-wing and only started to look like a Premier League player when switched to right-back.

FANTASY FOOTBALL TIPS: There are a lot of new players on the Premier League scene this season, and we have assessed 38 of them before Gameweek 1. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard". "We want to go up".

Paul Pogba scored the opener, and a late goal from Luke Shaw proved to be the difference as Jamie Vardy's added-time strike cut United's lead in half.

Pogba followed up that television interview with an Instagram post that was liked by Manchester United's official account and created plenty of discussion, as he thanked his team-mates and he fans, notably leaving Mourinho and his coaching staff out of his message.

It was nearly as if they were saying "look this is Old Trafford, and we are United - this is how we play". "It is just the win that is the most important".

Pogba resisted the pleas of Sanchez to take the spot-kick and after a prolonged stuttering run up, dispatched his shot into the top corner giving Kasper Schmeichel no chance to repeat his penalty saving heroics at the World Cup for Denmark. The manager has names but after, it's how we feel. Again, I know the words you want me to say or not to say. "Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis", said Pogba.

"Martial didn't have a pre-season", said Mourinho, quoted by ESPN.
