However, United saw out the rest of second-half stoppage time to start the season with three points and maintain Mourinho's unbeaten record in Premier League openers with nine wins and one draw over 10 matches.

Jose Mourinho was left frustrated by a lack of deadline-day activity as Manchester United failed to bring in the centre-back he craved. But I told the players we had good periods, lots of glimpses of the type of football we wanted to play. "I have the foundations to do that here with the manager and my team-mates at Manchester United". Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty.

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this week after stories emerged that the Frenchman has grown unsettled by some of Mourinho's comments during the summer.

"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho.

It has been a hard summer for United boss Jose Mourinho and I said last week that I felt he needed to find some harmony within the club.

Daniel Amartey's handball inside the penalty area gave Pogba the chance to break the deadlock in only the 3rd minute and the World Cup winning midfielder made no mistake from 12 yards.

Shaw's first touch from a Sanchez cross took a fortuitous bounce around Leicester's Ricardo Pereira, and the former Southampton defender pounced and fired a shot past Kasper Schmeichel to score.
