Jose Mourinho criticises Manchester United summer - Leicester spent more than us

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.

Andreas Pereira, making his first United appearance since February 2016, looked sharp in midfield as did Pogba, who saw a long-range shot denied before Shaw's tried his luck.

But RMC says Pogba has now put talk of a move to bed by vowing to stick around in Manchester until the end of the current campaign.

The midfielder returned on Monday and, although he has not featured in any pre-season friendlies, he was thrust straight back into the action four days later as the Premier League got under way once again at Old Trafford, United winning 2-1 on Friday.

Mourinho has consistently complained in recent weeks over his lack of backing from the United board and also had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with.

Both clubs finished below United last season in the English Premier League yet Mourinho claims they are projected as "serial winners" despite failing to land a trophy since 2012 and 2008 respectively.

"I think a lot will depend on how his team plays, you know".

United failed to build on that positive start, though, as Leicester went onto enjoy the better of the first-half with £20 million signing James Maddison impressing on debut.

"A match where I needed six changes, not three". Mourinho had warned the Red Devils that they could be in for a tough season but it is up to the players now to get a confidence-boosting win in the season opener. "We have big multi-functional coaching staffs and I think we are more the head coach than the manager".

Leicester will hope this is a good time to play the Manchester giants as they have a number of players injured or not match fit so Claude Puel will be hoping to take home at least a point this evening. I expect Leicester to make life hard and I see this being a tight game but ultimately feel United will have just enough to edge it.

The Daily Telegraph adds that United's board would only sanction the signing of a world-class defender such as Varane, but refused to bring in a "lesser" player, despite Mourinho's demands.

After a £52m deal was struck with Shakhtar Donetsk before the World Cup, the Brazilian midfielder agreed to join Man United. "I am happy with the performance to make this game in this condition, it's encouraging for the future".
