Paul Pogba explains penalty discussion with Alexis Sanchez during Leicester win

After the game, Mourinho, missing several midfield options because of injuries, praised Pogba for his willingness to start the game after only recently returning from his post-World Cup break. I need more changes but I couldn't.

After a week in which Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Barcelona's interest piqued by the Frenchman's frosty relationship with Mourinho after he was repeatedly dropped last season, the Portuguese showed his faith in the midfielder by surprisingly handing him the armband. "It's a different team, obviously". Paul [Pogba] was fantastic - his contribution was incredible, but the fuel was disappearing every minute, so we were in trouble and we needed [Scott] McTominay and [Marouane] Fellaini to give me that balance in midfield.

He got that from his team's display at Old Trafford, from the way they started so well to how they saw the game out at the end.

I am the same, it's the same Paul Pogba.

"No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do". "I doubt he'll be going anywhere this season".

Pogba eventually dispatched the spot kick in the opening minutes of United's Premier League clash with Leicester but teammate Alexis Sanchez clearly felt like he should have been given the opportunity.

He is the best left-back at the club when he is fit and flying so I am glad he has got his goal, because it should take a bit of pressure off him.

"The players let me I would say lead and give me the space to speak as well, and we have the same objective", he said about his successful summer with France, before pointedly picking out manager Didier Deschamps for special mention.

This could hint that Shaw will play a big part in this season, and if the backing from his once worst enemy continues, then who's to say he won't have a massive season?

We should start the Premier League with a win and we did today. It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher.

"I always love the club", he said.

I want to play [Anthony] Martial for [Juan] Mata or Alexis but I couldn't. I came in the academy, I grew up. For me, it was a dream come true.

This put them in a comfortable position throughout the rest of the match, and even more so when Luke Shaw tapped home in an unorthodox manner in the second half. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty.
