Paul Pogba Named Manchester United Captain - Starting XI V Leicester Confirmed

The Chilean believes they can help get the best out of him

Mourinho cut a gloomy figure throughout pre-season, seemingly frustrated by the club's failure - or disinclination - to secure more of his summer transfer targets.

Paul Pogba has set Manchester United fans thinking after a cryptic tweet today.

I think it will be the last time I speak about it.

Shaw's second-half goal put Jose Mourinho's side in the driving seat at Old Trafford, and the defender has now admitted he wants to make this season as impacting as possible and become a global name.

Andreas Pereira, making his first United appearance since February 2016, looked sharp in midfield as did Pogba, who saw a long-range shot denied before Shaw's tried his luck. "I think we are more head coaches than managers", he said.

Mourinho, who has been on record criticising some of his senior players came out strong to defend his relationship with them adding that he is ready to work with them to achieve the best result at the end of the season. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he told Sky Sports.

Pogba played a key part in France's successful World Cup campaign and was therefore allowed to miss most of United's pre-season.

Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot.

Barcelona did not make an offer for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, the World Cup winner's agent has confirmed.

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

Sanchez ticks all the boxes you want from your forward, so it is very hard to leave him out. "It's a good way to start the Premier League". "We thought maximum [he would play] 60 minutes, but he managed more than 80".

This was the third time in a row that Leicester had conceded the first goal of the Premier League season.

"He realised and then he's thinking "there's 2-0, there's the game in the bag", I know they sweated a little bit late on".
