It was the perfect start to the new Premier League for Manchester United as they secured a 2-1 victory over Leicester at Old Trafford.
The match got off to the perfect start as Paul Pogba netted from the penalty spot after just two minutes following a handball in the box.
United continue to battle and would eventually double their lead when Luke Shaw drilled a low effort into the net to secure his first ever senior goal. However, Mourinho’s side were sent a late scare when Jamie Vardy headed in deep into injury time.
Speaking after the match Pogba spoke about the difficult return to club football, but praised his teammates for their efforts: “I didn’t have any pre-season game, I came back on Monday. It was very hard and difficult for the legs and stamina. But we played very well.”
