Manchester United win showed that it didn't matter who they signed

Despite finishing 19 points adrift of their local rivals, Manchester United only brought in Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant over the summer transfer window.

Now it looks like no new arrivals will be heading to Old Trafford in this window.unless Mourinho has something up his sleeve. This is United's default setting under Mourinho. He had a good pre-season - he was one of the guys who had a complete pre-season playing every match and training for five weeks'.

Despite being critical of the club, Scholes is hoping the Red Devils get their campaign off to a flawless start when they face Leicester City at 3am tomorrow. At the other end, Pogba played in Alexis Sanchez who squared for Juan Mata, but his effort was deflected wide, via the arm of Wes Morgan, before substitute Vardy pressured Shaw into a mistake and crossed for Iheanacho, but De Gea saved down low.

It was the first game back with United for Pogba after his World Cup-winning exploits, and he said it was challenge to find his form before eventually giving way to substitute Marouane Fellaini in the 84th minute. "It depends on the music, but words for me don't come easy".

"So for me it's a big season for Paul Pogba, it's a good move, let's see how Paul Pogba gets on tonight".

Manchester United endured a poor summer this time around.


According to the Daily Mirror, United chiefs have told Mourinho that the club needs to be more like their neighbours - both on and off the pitch.

Just 26 days after lifting the World Cup in Moscow, Paul Pogba was pressed back into action. If he remains at Old Trafford beyond the 31 August European transfer deadline how do the club, and Mourinho, manage the World Cup-winning star?

The players appeared to briefly state their cases about who should take the shot, but Pogba - named captain for the day by Jose Mourinho - won out and converted his attempt to give United an early lead.

What lies ahead for Jose and United?

Leicester have finally cashed in on Riyad Mahrez but they've shown characteristic resolve to rebuff United's interest in Harry Maguire. However, Mourinho's time in charge of the club has been filled with feuding with his players, ownership and the media.
