Manchester United wins Premier League opener with Pogba goal

"We should start the Premier League with a win and we did today".

Mourinho said after the game that his side showed glimpses of what they are capable of, and they certainly made an impressive start.

Leicester responded well though with new signing James Maddison forcing a fine save out of United keeper David De Gea as the visitors gave Mourinho's side plenty to think about. I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in. But I told the players we had good periods, lots of glimpses of the type of football we wanted to play.

"A good match. A match where I needed six changes not three".

August 11 Partial Solar Eclipse: Best Times, Places to See
In 2018, the first eclipse was the super blue blood moon on January 31 followed by a partial solar eclipse on the February 15. The third and final solar eclipse of 2018 is just around the corner and is set to be the most-watched eclipse of the year.

But for all that could have been this summer, Mourinho certainly has the talent at his disposal to make this a successful season, especially if Pogba can replicate Friday night's display. United finished second last season behind their rivals Manchester City. "I didn't have any preseason games, I came back on Monday so it was very hard for the legs".

'He is the first choice, ' added Mourinho.

On top of his transfer troubles, Mourinho had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with. "Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis", said Pogba. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very odd run-up for his penalty.

The report puts up another difference between the management and manager as they believe in keeping players such as Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba.

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.

He is the best left-back at the club when he is fit and flying so I am glad he has got his goal, because it should take a bit of pressure off him.

"I have the foundations to do that here with the manager and my team-mates at Manchester United".
