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.

His message sparked a flurry of tweets from United fans looking for hidden meanings, with some seeking reassurance that the player was settled at Old Trafford and not likely to jump ship to Barcelona.

The Premier League match between Manchester United and Leicester will be broadcast on NBCSN.

Manchester United's transfer woes in pre-season has left Jose Mourinho feeling more like a head coach than a manager as his targets were reportedly vetoed.

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

Jamie Vardy got Leicester's late reply at Old Trafford (Steven Paston/PA). "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", the tactician said. I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies.

But due to Mourinho's lack of options Pogba was asked if he could play - and as you would expect, he said yes.

Despite the rumoured transfer conflict between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba, Mourinho handed the captaincy to Pogba, and the French midfielder delivered in style.

"I won't be full from a World Cup". "It's a good way to start the Premier League".

The United board were not open to spending money on defenders that they claimed were not better than the players already in the side, which has not gone down well with Mourinho according to the Guardian.

The Foxes spent the summer upgrading their defense, signing Jonny Evans and Ricardo Pereira to shore up a defense that allowed 60 goals last season, the fifth most in the Premier League. "We will have the same players, the injured players are not going to be back", said Mourinho. I enjoyed last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position this club has had in five years. Not just with that [goal] but in 90 minutes he made just one mistake, and it's the kind of mistake where probably the linesman could help him and give a freekick for us and resolve the problem, ' said the Portuguese.
