And former United full-back Gary Neville believes Pogba can stay at Old Trafford for a number of years.

"Of course it makes me proud, it makes me happy to wear this (armband) at a big club like Manchester United", Pogba said. Maybe in the next game I can give to Alexis. I was thinking, "How do you get the power into it?" For a moment it looked like Schmeichel would just get his hand behind the ball to deny the French national, but there was no stopping Pogba's stunning shot.With the Reds up by 1, the scoreline for the remainder of the half did not reflect the performance.

Just 26 days after lifting the World Cup with France, the 25-year-old scored an early penalty and dominated the midfield before being replaced after 84 minutes.

"We don't really have one [penalty taker]", Pogba said after the match.

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I chose to take it".

"I made a decision to take it, I was one of the names and in the next game, I can leave it to Alexis, it's not a problem".

- Leicester City (@LCFC) August 10, 2018There has been a general buzz in the footballing world as fans eagerly awaited the start of the new season following the hugely successful World Cup. "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".

But this is the last time I speak about it. "Marcus Rashford was in trouble but he played", said Mourinho. "We thought a maximum 60 minutes but he managed 80".

Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was incredible".

A tense relationship with Jose Mourinho appears to be at the heart of it. Questions about their relationship were raised last term and the midfielder is said to have been annoyed by his manager's comments around the World Cup. Leicester got off to a poor start to the season but were able to climb the table throughout the season, finishing ninth.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has explained Anthony Martial's absence in the clash against Leicester City, claiming he wanted to bring the player on but couldn't.
