"It just seems with Mourinho that it's had an impact on him", he told Sky Sports News.

"But he's got great experience, he's been at top clubs, he's been in hard positions before, he's in a hard position now I think, but he needs to try to find a way to get out of it". "We have to wait until the end of November to understand if we can fight for the title".

Many were surprised that Mourinho chose to leave the Manchester United forward on the bench, particularly given he was not at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Chief football writer Daniel Taylor writes: "United's conclusion was that in most cases Mourinho had targeted defenders who were no better than those they already had".

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have not given up on signing Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba, according to reports coming out of Spain.

United's city rivals Manchester City walked the 2017-18 Premier League campaign and lifted the trophy after becoming the first team to ever reach 100 points, so it's no surprise they are heavy favourites going into this season.

Jose Mourinho checks his notes on the sideline during last night's match against Leicester City at Old Trafford. "Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt".

The World Cup victor is wanted by Barcelona but the Old Trafford club are refusing to sell the midfielder.

'Pogba was a monster, ' Mourinho said after United's record £89million record signing started against Leicester despite just four days training since returning from winning the World Cup in Russian Federation. "Marcus Rashford was in trouble but he played", said Mourinho.

The England World Cup hero only returned to training on Monday but is still in line to start.

Craig Bellamy has criticised Manchester United for their "desperate" scramble for a centre-back in the closing days of the summer transfer window. 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.

After a brilliant World Cup, Perisic is now worth nearly double that figure.

"I will focus on the players that are available, so I am not even thinking about that list of injured players I gave you, (Nemanja) Matic, (Antonio) Valencia and so on".
