Mourinho's tactics get Man United off to the flawless start

United kick-started their campaign on the right foot with a 2-1 victory over Leicester as Luke Shaw followed up Pogba's opener with a second goal in the 83rd minute before Jamie Vardy scored what turned out to be a consolation goal for Leicester.

"I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

"We thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed (more than) 80. I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in", said the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager. "I wonder if Jose's words the other day, "Let's wait until the end of November", I would be very surprised if United weren't top of the league come the end of November".

"But if you look at the games that Manchester United play in the first nine or 10 games, you're not playing a City, an Arsenal, a Chelsea in that period".

"I know that Paul doesn't resist for 90, the same with Fred". It was a good match with three good teams, in my opinion.

Andreas Pereira. The talented young Belgian spent last season on loan at Valencia and got the surprise start in this one.

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


Read the key comments from the boss as he spoke to Sky Sports as well as reporters in his press conference....

"The club, since they sacked David Moyes, have been on a roundabout and have been reacting to things rather than going with a long-term strategy".

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

Leicester showed that even without Riyad Mahrez, who has joined Manchester City, it remains a team with plenty of creativity. "But he just lifts it over [Leicester goalkeeper] Kasper Schmeichel and when you do that in the upper part of the net keepers never get them". "I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies". "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".

Bailly can be a bit rash and possibly needs a voice in his ear as he is about to dive into a tackle to say "stand up, stand up" but he got away with it against Leicester and is clearly a good defender.
