Manchester United vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report

Jose Mourinho

The midfielder, who won the World Cup with France in the summer, was a surprise starter against Leicester City in Manchester United's Premier League opener, opening the scoring for his side in a 2-1 win.

"Of course the boys with the proper pre-seasons, they were in much better condition", Mourinho said.

But this is the last time I speak about it.

"I don't think I was playing as well as I could with my attacking capabilities last season, and that's what I'm known for".

Anthony Martial is believed to be one of them but the United forward is going nowhere, nor is compatriot Paul Pogba amid reported interest from Barcelona and supposed tensions with Mourinho.

"The team played as a team", Mourinho said.

United would have allegedly deemed an offer of £100m as good value for money, with the France worldwide only being 25 years of age and having the potential to play a leading role in the centre of the defence for a decade.

'We have big coaching staffs and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.

It's a major blow for the Redskins going into a critical season for Jay Gruden's offense directed by new quarterback Alex Smith . ACL tears typically take at least six months to recover from and the track record of being the same player has been mixed.

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

"I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies". The only one top-level conversation between the clubs was Spurs enquiring about two of United's players.

"He's in the group of players who didn't have a preseason, it's as simple as that".

Sanchez ticks all the boxes you want from your forward, so it is very hard to leave him out.

Luke Shaw was the scorer, netting after an initial poor touch, with what was his first-ever goal in senior football.

Lindelof and Bailly - together at the back?

Manchester United kicked off the Premier League season with three points against Leicester, but post-match interventions from Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba hinted that tensions may linger behind closed doors at Old Trafford. A lot of coaches forget that player development is part of the job description, but not Mou.

Yes, Marcus Rashford missed a couple of half-chances, but there was nothing clear-cut, while Romelu Lukaku should have scored when he was clean through but Kasper Schmeichel made a superb save. I am looking forward to seeing how their season progresses from here.
