Manchester United vs Leicester City - predicted starting XI

Man Utd news Rio Ferdinand says Man City and Liverpool will finish as the top two in the Premier League

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred.

"I think Mr [Richard] Scudamore must be happy because it's a good way to start the Premier League".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said finishing second behind Manchester City last season feels like one of his "biggest achievements" as a manager in football after the criticism he has received.

A number of clubs, such as Arsenal, have begun to use the title "head coach" rather than the traditional "manager" to reflect the changed structures with increased roles for Directors of Football, heads of recruitment and chief executives.

"Pogba was a monster, we thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed (more than) 80", he said.

United added only Brazilian midfielder Fred, teenage full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant to the squad that finished 19 points adrift of champions Manchester City last season. Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said.

"But I told the players we had very good periods, we had lots of glimpses of the football we wanted to play". "Forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirts".

Saudi-led coalition claims deadly Yemen attack
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the USA was "concerned" by reports of an attack resulting in civilian deaths. The missile was sacked from the rebel-held Yemeni province of Amran towards the Saudi city of Jizan, the coalition said.

The manager pointed to those players who, alongside Pogba, had little training due to post-World Cup breaks.

With only a few minutes gone defender Amartey handled in the box and Pogba, after a stuttered run up, hit the ball over Schmeichel into the top of the net.

And Gary Lineker was extremely impressed with Pogba's display.

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was wonderful but the fuel was disappearing".

Chelsea shattered the world-record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (US$92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian global Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champion Real Madrid. Andreas Pereira has been rewarded for his fine pre-season while compatriot Fred makes his debut.

"I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us". I think one defensive mistake and probably the linesman could help him and give a free-kick against Leicester.
