United off to winning start

'Make teams fear us again' - Manchester United fan starts campaign to sack manager Jose Mourinho Mourinhho on Man Utd market flop: Call me coach - not manager!

David de Gea was at his best between the goal as he made some crucial saves, including the one to deny James Maddinson in the first half.

He also praised Luke Shaw, who scored to seal the win and had been a target for Mourinho's criticism last season. It didn't.A few shouts for this man on his competitive debut for #MUFC!

After an unusual stuttering run-up that briefly gave way to jogging on the spot, Pogba rifled home the first goal from the penalty spot in the third minute after Daniel Amartey had handled a shot from Alexis Sanchez.

After facing Leicester, United face Brighton and Tottenham.

Manchester United ended up in a disappointing second place last season as they failed to win a trophy in Mourinho's second campaign in charge at Old Trafford.

To be fair to the Scotsman, Manchester United do have a not so hard first few games to the season but it's against such sides they struggled last season.

If moves for Maguire and Alderweireld can not be completed before today's 5pm deadline, United may turn to Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng - although that deal would only be for a season-long loan.

Manchester United prepared to pay £100m for Real Madrid's Raphael Varane?
Not just because of the harmony they've had since Jurgen Klopp has been there, but also the signings they've done early. However, Spurs could go back in for Grealish, 22, next summer if Villa fail to get promoted.

Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said.

The manager made it be known that he was expecting plenty of incomings heading into 2018-19 as he looked to gear his side up to challenge a Manchester City side which ran away with last season's title.

"If I answer that just very simply and candidly, playing performance doesn't really have a meaningful impact on what we can do on the commercial size of the business", he explained to shareholders.

Dan Hughes hopes Mourinho allows the team to "express themselves" and plays an attacking game the "United way", stating the club have a good team at their disposal even with no new defensive signings.

Midfielder Fred arrived for big money but he was the only major new signing as Mourinho's appeals for fresh defensive blood went unheeded.

And as United's season kicked off with victory over Leicester Pogba's mighty display showcased his special talent - and brought some straight talking from the intelligent £89 million midfield power-house.
