‘Monster’ Pogba leads Manchester United to winning start

  • Pogba-France

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba had different takes on Manchester United's penalty debate on Friday night.

"I chose to take it - I was one of the names - but maybe next time I can leave it to Alexis, it's not a problem". Paul, he was fantastic his contribution was awesome, but the fuel was disappearing every minute so we were in trouble and I needed [Marouane] Fellaini and [Scott] McTominay to give me that balance in midfield.

But due to Mourinho's lack of options Pogba was asked if he could play - and as you would expect, he said yes.

Andreas Pereira. The talented young Belgian spent last season on loan at Valencia and got the surprise start in this one.

"I mean, Manchester United, we have to show on the pitch, we have to play well, we have to be focused and we need people to trust us".

Mourinho did not get the new centre-half he wanted in the transfer window and, from the comments he made after the Leicester match about being a head coach instead of a manager, he is still not happy about it. Mourinho isn't a ball-buster per se, but he isn't going to baby his players if he sees room for improvement.

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.

QB play, defense help Browns to preseason win Taylor and Mayfield combine
Callaway, the Browns' fourth-round pick, played despite being cited for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license. In his National Football League preseason debut, Giants running back Barkley delivered with a 39-yard rush on his first touch.

The 25-year-old won the World Cup with France this summer but questions have been hanging over his future at the club following weeks of speculation.

Mourinho told Sky Sports on the tough decisions he faced when making substitutions: "A match where I needed six changes not three".

Pogba scored for France in July's World Cup final and will hope to transfer his worldwide success to United.

Sanchez ticks all the boxes you want from your forward, so it is very hard to leave him out.

"We thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed (more than) 80".

"We know the players, and myself as well, didn't have a lot of training and we played a game".

Leicester forced attack after attack, but each one failed to bring the foxes equal.In his debut in the Premier League, youngster James Maddison, who signed this summer from Norwich city, looked very impressive.
