       Jose Mourinho has hit back at 'lies' over unrest in his squad

United went on to win the match and give their season a flying start after a summer of reported misery at Old Trafford.

With his open to interpretation message, Manchester United fans replied and asked if this meant he wasn't happy at the club and wanted to leave.

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.

Shaw's second-half goal put Jose Mourinho's side in the driving seat at Old Trafford, and the defender has now admitted he wants to make this season as impacting as possible and become a global name.

Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was wonderful".

"We don't have many solutions and we want to go with everything we have".

Following the captures of right back Diogo Dalot, Brazilian midfielder Fred and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant earlier in the summer, the club failed to bring in any other signings on transfer deadline day, much to Mourinho's dismay.

Chelsea appear to have learnt from their mistakes, with Kepa signing a seven-year contract. I've said sorry and I do so again now. "I find Sarri's style and ideas very attractive".

"We played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us".

Paul Pogba who scored the opening goal of the season spoke to Sky Sports after his team win.

Jose Mourinho's relationship with his players has also come under scrutiny, but any such tension was forgotten as Pogba and Shaw - a duo that have endured ups and downs with the United boss - secured a 2-1 win against Leicester.

"I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches". The path to the three points began with a Paul Pogba penalty kick just two minutes in after a hand ball, and the World Cup victor with France made no mistake, finishing calmly into the far post.

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. "It's a good way to start the Premier League". "We thought maximum [he could play] 60 minutes, but he managed 80". We had a lot of problems preparing this game.

He added: "It was not a hard decision [to start Pogba], the decision was down to him".
