Three things Manchester United learned in win over Leicester City

The World Cup victor was sublime but with Mourinho openly criticizing him in the past and now exactly praising him for helping France to World Cup glory this summer, Pogba doesn't seem that happy at Old Trafford.

Barcelona could still make a move to sign Pogba before the August 31st transfer deadline in Spain and even if these quotes are the clearest indication yet that the player is not happy working with Mourinho, it is hard to imagine Old Trafford chiefs selling one of their star men this month. However, Jose Mourinho, who also publicly criticised Pogba last season, said the midfielder "started average and ended top" and suggested he would struggle to sustain the same level of concentration over an entire league season.

This was the case last night, although Manchester United pushed those nerves aside, as Paul Pogba fired home from the spot early on.

"If you're not happy in doing what you're doing right now, there's no point doing it" he says. "He played the World Cup not so long ago and played today, which shows how fit he is. But if you're not happy, you can not give your best". "Like I always say, I always give my best for the fans, for my team-mates, for the people that trust me".

The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup victor, but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most.

However, a post on Pogba's Instagram account shortly after the game fuelled continuing speculation that he is still far from settled at Old Trafford.

"When we have everybody with you, everybody next to you know they want to fight for you, obviously it's going to be easier, you know?" he said.

It was nearly as if they were saying "look this is Old Trafford, and we are United - this is how we play".

"I had only two options: Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play 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".

Fittingly, Paul Pogba's first ever goal in the EPL came against Leicester during the 2016 Season.

He is the best left-back at the club when he is fit and flying so I am glad he has got his goal, because it should take a bit of pressure off him.
