Pogba leaves Mourinho raving after 'monster' performance

Man Utd transfer news Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho failed to sign any players on deadline day

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation.

"Mourinho has all the resources available to him to make this team a winning team again and to start playing better football, but I still think they've got a long way more to go". The style of play under Mourinho has not been easy to watch but he'll always say I don't care what style but we finished second in the league.

Pogba responded with what Mourinho described as a "monster" performance and took responsibility from the penalty spot to open the scoring after just three minutes of the season.

"We knew we were not going to be fit, 100 per cent, but the most important (thing) was to start well the Premier League".

"We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title", he said.

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

Mourinho's desire to be solid and hard to break down as a team - perhaps enhanced by an erratic and ever-changing defence - meant players such as Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sánchez were often denied the creative licence required to break down smaller...

"Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt".

Fantasy fallout: Derrius Guice will miss rookie season due to tore ACL
ACL tears typically take at least six months to recover from and the track record of being the same player has been mixed. But there are other running backs, such as Ronnie Brown and Edgerrin James, who were never the same after the injury.

Fellow Sky Sports expert Jamie Carragher, agreed, saying: "The right decision happened, even if we were all a bit alarmed with the run-up!"

"I made a choice to try and finish the game", he said. I want to play [Anthony] Martial, but I can't.

United were outstanding in the early stages and I think the Foxes were in shock at the way they came out of the blocks and took control of the game.

"In the periods Leicester were stronger we played as a team and coped well".

The United boss clashed several times with Shaw last season but he was jubilant following the left-back's goal last night, rushing over to his staff to celebrate.

"[Kasper] Schmeichel is very good on pens but no chance".

Mourinho's men started their league campaign on a high after overcoming Leicester City on Friday.

But it is not just the manager's relationship with United's players that has come under inspection, considering he was irked by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward failing to strengthen the squad before the transfer deadline. "In this condition it has been a good performance".
