Paul Scholes sends message to Man United fans about Jose Mourinho

     Toby Alderweireld could join despite Jose Mourinho's earlier comments

MANCHESTER UNITED Toby Alderweireld could join despite Jose Mourinho's earlier comments

Given the pressure on him at times over the last few seasons, with questions of his physical condition and mentality, Shaw will be delighted to have scored.

"We play against a team that invest more than us". He had a decent World Cup with Colombia and suddenly he's on the radar.

'Paul was fantastic. His contribution was incredible.

The Daily Telegraph adds that United's board would only sanction the signing of a world-class defender such as Varane, but refused to bring in a "lesser" player, despite Mourinho's demands.

'I'm quite young and I want to get better, progress and win more trophies, ' said Pogba.

The France worldwide scored in just the second minute after Sanchez's cross was handled by Daniel Armartey in the box.

Pogba resisted the pleas of Sanchez to take the spot-kick and after a prolonged stuttering run up, dispatched his shot into the top corner giving Kasper Schmeichel no chance to repeat his penalty saving heroics at the World Cup for Denmark. Maybe in the next game I can give to Alexis.

Having had a full pre-season behind him, undisturbed by the World Cup, Alexis Sanchez should have come into this game like a house on fire.

Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw have come under fire from Mourinho during his time as United boss, but the duo emerged as match-winners as they scored the goals that fired the home side to a win at Old Trafford.

He said: "Have to say.well I don't have to but I will.Paul Pogba's performance after everything that's happened to him over the last month or two, as well as the lack of pre season training, has been truly remarkable".

"I think it's a good move", Neville said on Sky Sports about the captaincy.

United failed to build on that positive start, though, as Leicester went onto enjoy the better of the first-half with £20 million signing James Maddison impressing on debut.

Although the game never truly sparked into life, it did provide plenty of talking points for both sides, as well as extending Jose Mourinho's record to 18 opening day games without defeat as a manager, winning 11 and drawing seven.

"Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left-back's display. What panics me a little bit with Manchester United is just they're short in one or two areas, of course they are, but now it looks like they've got three or four players and they're going round the block now with it.
