The midfielder successfully converted a third-minute penalty to give his side the lead and gave everything until the 84th minute - by which point Luke Shaw's first career goal had doubled the advantage.

With his open to interpretation message, Manchester United fans replied and asked if this meant he wasn't happy at the club and wanted to leave.

Vardy pulled a goal back for Leicester in stoppage time to give them some reward for a good performance against last season's runners-up.

Mourinho has previously spoken about how he likes to have two options per position and it's now finally that case so there's no excuses left for the former Southampton man.

Leicester looked startled by United's early intensity but slowly began to feel its way into the match, with debutant James Maddison shining.

"We have to wait for end of November, beginning of December to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title".

Paul Pogba pledged to continue giving his best for fans, team-mates and "the people that trust me" in the wake of renewed speculation about his Manchester United future.

Who are the white nationalists gathering in Washington?
Instead, he and his organization plan to hold a rally with several hundred people at a park across form the White House. Speaking to press in the days that followed, Trump stated , "You have people who are very fine people on both sides".

"You can't sort of fall back and think "I'm changing my mind" - you've gone too far".

Read the key comments from the boss as he spoke to Sky Sports as well as reporters in his press conference....

Mourinho is now unbeaten in all 18 of his opening league matches of a season as a manager and has won nine out of 10 in the Premier League.

Leicester showed that even without Riyad Mahrez, who has joined Manchester City, it remains a team with plenty of creativity. "I didn't have any preseason games, I came back on Monday so it was very hard for the legs".

That's not surprising, because I know from experience that everyone is a bit rusty for the first game back.

Leicester came close to an equalizer though when substitute Jamie Vardy robbed Shaw and found Demarai Gray whose flick forced another good save out of De Gea. I want to play [Anthony] Martial for [Juan] Mata or Alexis but I couldn't.
