Anthony Martial's face when Fellaini replaced Pogba speaks volumes

Anthony Martial's face when Fellaini replaced Pogba speaks volumes

A 2-1 victory on Friday night, built around a stirring performance and an early penalty from World Cup victor Pogba as well as Luke Shaw's first career goal, might have been cause for good cheer, but Mourinho chose the occasion to revisit his concerns over the club's recent business. During United's pre-season tour to America, Mourinho ran through a list of players who could wear the armband if Valencia did not play.

Things were a lot more even for the rest of the match but I also think Mourinho will be happy with the way his side managed the game when Leicester were posing a threat.

When the deadline passed at 5pm on Thursday there were no new arrivals at Old Trafford.

Pogba was a monster.

Paul Pogba claims Manchester United had no designated penalty taker against Leicester City and says he is prepared to let Alexis Sanchez take the club's next one after winning an argument with the Chilean.

"I don't remember in my career to be in so much in trouble to make my changes because I wanted to make five or six and I could only make three".

Jose Mourinho was equally impressed with Shaw's display so supporters will definitely be looking forward to seeing more of him in the left-back spot.

"But every time he played, he did a great job and showed something great".

Manchester United's transfer woes in pre-season has left Jose Mourinho feeling more like a head coach than a manager as his targets were reportedly vetoed.

Mourinho warned it could be a "difficult season" if United did not bring in at least one more face, with centre-back the main focus in a market that was inflated by last summer's deals.

Yes, Marcus Rashford missed a couple of half-chances, but there was nothing clear-cut, while Romelu Lukaku should have scored when he was clean through but Kasper Schmeichel made a superb save.

The manager pointed to those players who, alongside Pogba, had little training due to post-World Cup breaks.

As I was saying on BBC Radio 5 live on Friday, United have a very strong squad.

"No. Last season he was captain a few times", Mourinho told reporters ahead of tonight's clash (via the Mirror)".

However, the second goal of the game would eventually come for the hosts late on, via an unlikely source.
