"It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored", he said.

Pogba is joined in midfield by Brazil global Fred, who was signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in June, while there is also a place for Andreas Pereira following his eye-catching pre-season displays for United.

The midfielder featured in two of United's friendlies but Mourinho insists that he didn't have a pre-season and must therefore start in the same position as the players who have just returned from extended holidays after the World Cup.

Allardyce was aware of the Red Devils' hunt for a new centre-back and had plenty to say ahead of the transfer window slamming shut.

He also said he'd moved past the excitement of the summer, adding: "Winning the World Cup is in the past".




Shaw's second-half goal put Jose Mourinho's side in the driving seat at Old Trafford, and the defender has now admitted he wants to make this season as impacting as possible and become a global name. We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games. He's in the group of players who didn't have a pre season, it's as simple as that. So, when you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that repeated 1,000 times is still a lie.

Willian's form across the past few seasons for the Stamford Bridge club has attracted interested from some of Europe's biggest clubs including both Barcelona and Manchester United. Leicester got off to a poor start to the season but were able to climb the table throughout the season, finishing ninth.

"I think what Jose Mourinho saw and what all of us saw in the summer was Paul Pogba smashing the middle of the France changing room, calling on the rest of the players, demanding more from them. By the end of November or December, you don't need words, you'll see by then which teams are candidates to win the Premier League".

"I'm going to enjoy this season".

Leicester looked startled by United's early intensity but began to fell their way into the match as debutant James Maddison impressed and their wide men made in-roads.
