I fear being fined if I speak out - Pogba

Man Utd transfer news

It was not flawless by any means, but who cares?

The goal scorers for United - Pogba and Shaw spoke after the match.

Alas for Claude Puel's men, they wouldn't nab an equaliser, with United getting their campaign underway with all three points.

With Pogba, fresh from World Cup duty, and summer signing Fred among those included in the starting XI, the United boss told Sky Sports on the tough decisions he faced: "A match where I needed six changes not three".

"I ran the London marathon in April past and it fell on the same weekend as the FA Cup Semi Final against Spurs, so I took him there and that was his first game".

"[Luke] Shaw, Andreas Pereira, [Eric] Bailly, [Matteo] Darmian, they were comfortable to play 90 mins". The opaque reference to "what's going on" may also be a source of concern for United fans desperate to see him remain and flourish at the club for a long time.

He could hold the ball up well but more importantly his link-up play was always excellent in his prime at the club.

I want to play [Anthony] Martial for [Juan] Mata or Alexis but I couldn't.

"No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do".

"[It] was not hard", Mourinho added. [Shaw's] game was very complete, even if I forget the goal, of course an important goal for us, but the performance was very complete.

Jose is the type of manager who gives someone the captaincy for the right reasons and I think he made a decision to give Pogba some responsibility for managing the game and the players around him, which was a very clever move.

Shaw got the start, which would have been nerve-wracking for him. I think maybe one of them decided.

He said: "I always give my best for the fans, for the teammates and for the people that trust me".

Lindelof and Bailly - together at the back?

Bailly can be a bit rash and possibly needs a voice in his ear as he is about to dive into a tackle to say "stand up, stand up" but he got away with it against Leicester and is clearly a good defender. Hopefully I will be back soon fit, very fit, 100 per cent fit.

"If you're not happy in doing what you're doing right now, there's no point doing it", he said.

Matteo Darmian, hoping for a return to Italy before the end of the month, tested Schmeichel at the near post early into a second half that United started with bundles of possession but few clear-cut chances.
