Proud Pogba happy to repay trust as Man Utd captain

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed the players he will miss during their league opener tie against Leicester City.

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

Mourinho's relationship with Pogba has attracted as much attention as his dealings with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in recent months, but events at Old Trafford appeared to be restorative.

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.

Mourinho has previously spoken about how he likes to have two options per position and it's now finally that case so there's no excuses left for the former Southampton man.

Neither side were able to put out their strongest side with players returning from the World Cup and Vardy, Lukaku and Young among those on the bench, while Andreas Pereira played in midfield for Mourinho.

"I am [also] very pleased for Luke", Mourinho said.

Having failed to land the new centre-back that he craved, Mourinho says that he is now in a hard position. It's the last time I speak about it.

Leicester forced attack after attack, but each one failed to bring the foxes equal.In his debut in the Premier League, youngster James Maddison, who signed this summer from Norwich city, looked very impressive. Not just with that [goal] but in 90 minutes he made just one mistake, and it's the kind of mistake where probably the linesman could help him and give a freekick for us and resolve the problem, ' said the Portuguese.

But considering Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly had played so little together in their time at United - just 99 minutes in total before Friday's game - they looked pretty solid and sturdy at the back.
