Mourinho: Wait to see if Man Utd can contend

Man Utd news Jose Mourinho Romelu Lukaku

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.

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation.

Indeed, Pogba stepped up and played a starring role to help France win the World Cup, scoring in the final victory over Croatia. "In the second half I had Andreas Pereira and Fred with a yellow card, Paul was fantastic his contribution was awesome, but the fuel was disappearing".

And when Martial left United's U.S. camp to return home for the birth of his child - and didn't return - it seemed his relationship with Jose Mourinho had hit an all-time low.

"When playing regularly, I think he's within the top two or three centre-halves in the country, in this league".

The attacks are just the latest in a series of assaults on Afghanistan's security forces. No group has claimed responsibility, according to local officials.

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. This is nothing to worry too much about at the moment though, as it's only early days in the season and I'm sure that once a few more players come back we'll start to see them click more. "Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt".

United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

"For me it's the first one and that's the most important". It's the last time I speak about it. It's over, finished, the market is closed and no more talk about it. "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

And afterwards the new world champion vowed to always work hard "for the people that trust me".

"In 90 minutes, he made one mistake - and it was probably a mistake where the linesman could help him and give a free-kick for us and resolve the problem". United had a shaky pre-season with results and performances not meeting the expectations of the fans, however it did give the team vital minutes to get up to full fitness in preparation for this game.
