Manchester United win showed that it didn't matter who they signed

Paul Pogba and Sam Allardyce

It was Shaw, who just like Pogba has endured tough times with Mourinho, who was the unlikely late hero for United.

"It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored", he said.

Paul Pogba has played down any notion of a row with Alexis Sanchez after the Chilean argued with the Manchester United skipper over penalty duties on Friday night.

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

"The information I have is no", said Mourinho when asked if he would be adding to his squad. Still, it was a display to suggest this could be his season in the same way he left his mark on the World Cup.

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his global future.


"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

The move was created to ease disruption in the first few weeks of the campaign after a number of high-profile players, including Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk, missed matches at the start of last season due to transfer speculation.

It comes after a summer during which Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has appeared strained.

Boateng trained with Bayern Munich on Thursday, with Paris Saint-Germain now touted as the front-runners for his signature - a deal that can, of course, be done later in the month after the Premier League bows out of the market as a buying power.

Matteo Darmian then tested Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel at the near post early into a second half that United started with bundles of possession, but few clear-cut chances.

Ernesto Valverde identified Paul Pogba as Iniesta's replacement, who left the club for a stint in Japan at the end of last season.
