Pogba scores as Man United wins Premier League opener

Jose Mourinho insists he has a good relationship with his squad

"But if you look at the games that Manchester United play in the first nine or 10 games, you're not playing a City, an Arsenal, a Chelsea in that period". United were interested in signing Raphael Varane of Real Madrid and were looking to splash over £100m for the World Cup victor.

Sanchez ticks all the boxes you want from your forward, so it is very hard to leave him out.

"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young". I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

And the Portuguese seemed to confirm those reports after Friday's unimpressive 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League's opening game of the 2018-19 season, a campaign he predicts will be "difficult" for his squad.

But there is something brewing behind the scenes and there has been for some time after Mourinho left Pogba out of the team on multiple occasions last season and publicly criticized him. "I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said. "It's a good way to start the Premier League".

Twitter user @wordtoJude felt this news was a long time coming - "IVE BEEN ASKING FOR THIS FOR YEARS". However, Elba once insisted that no one is genuinely considering him to play 007.

The hosts got a much-needed lift after just two minutes when Daniel Amartey was harshly adjudged by referee Andre Mariner to have handled Alexis Sanchez's shot.

"I chose to take it - I was one of the names - but maybe next time I can leave it to Alexis, it's not a problem". We thought [he could play a] maximum 60 minutes, but he managed 80. Paul [Pogba] was fantastic - his contribution was unbelievable, but the fuel was disappearing every minute, so we were in trouble and we needed [Scott] McTominay and [Marouane] Fellaini to give me that balance in midfield. I am (also) very pleased for Luke. Paul Pogba couldn't play 90 minutes, Fred the same.

Leicester name United summer target Harry Maguire among their starters, while fellow England World Cup star Jamie Vardy is on the bench alongside new signing and former United player Jonny Evans.

The midfielder who amassed a total of 718 appearances for the club questioned the Portuguese manager's idea of a "new-look" for United, saying former manager Sir Alex Ferguson has already left the club with a flawless recipe for success.
