Man United beats Leicester 2-1 in Premier League opener

Man United beats Leicester 2-1 in Premier League opener

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes explained what it would take for Mourinho to stand down as the Red Devils boss at the end of the Premier League season. "The target is Leicester match and the tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button", he said.

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred.

Speaking at a news conference to preview Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester, Mourinho told reporters he does not expect any deadline-day activity at Old Trafford, despite also being linked to centre-backs Toby Alderweireld, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng.

Maguire and Leicester's main goal threat, Jamie Vardy, may not start having just returned to pre-season training this week after their exertions in Russian Federation.

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and he's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels".

If you're as old as I am, then you'll remember the day Sony launched its first PlayStation way back in 1995 (1994 in Japan). The best-looking PS4 Pro yet is coming out later this month, but if you want one you'll need to act fast.

Mourinho, missing several midfield options due to injury, praised Pogba for his willingness to start the game after only recently returning from his post-World Cup break. But Mourinho now says he is focusing on the players already at his disposal. We thought [he could play a] maximum 60 minutes, but he managed 80.

"We have big coaching staffs and I think we are more the head coach than the manager". "Everyone is hungry for that, that is the trophy we want". The World Cup-winning midfielder reportedly informed the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward via text that he intends to leave the club following a rejected approach from Barcelona.

"But you don't win anything with second and with Liverpool and Man City looking stronger than ever, I worry for them", he said. "I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the European Championship so there are more to win", he said. Even though we have improved a lot, we need to keep improving.

As such, it was expected that Sanchez would be effervescent against Leicester City, sharper and more focused than his teammates and opponents ahead of a crucial campaign for Jose Mourinho's team.

It's reported by The Sun that United were actually prepared to shell out £100m for French World Cup victor Varane, but Real Madrid were not interested in selling.
