KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"Ever since he had been asking me to take him to see United and Paul Pogba".

The goal scorers for United - Pogba and Shaw spoke after the match. That's the way I think football is going.

"If I miss, I know what I can hear after that".

Former United captain and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville admitted Pogba's unusual run-up had him anxious.

He added: "It was not a hard decision [to start Pogba], the decision was down to him".

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. "I am someone who likes challenges and wants to progress and you have to leave it behind now".

"It's not too much at £50million because ultimately you've just got to get the players in".

With only a few minutes gone defender Amartey handled in the box and Pogba, after a stuttered run up, hit the ball over Schmeichel into the top of the net. "Even if the manager puts down the names, it's about how we feel". I think with everybody, all the players, all the team-mates, make you comfortable to wear this and proud to wear this.

Mourinho would rather have had more bodies available due to successful transfers - and made one pointed reference to his own role in the recruitment process - but he could not fail to be impressed by Pogba's powerhouse showing in the 2-1 win.

"Of course the performance wasn't the best, but it's better to start like this and finish well than start very well and finish bad".

The Premier League match between Manchester United and Leicester will be broadcast on NBCSN.

"We knew we were not going to be fit, 100 per cent, but the most important was to start well the Premier League".

Another Frenchman who actually had no pre-season, Paul Pogba, could be on the bench for United in their season opener against Leicester on Friday, despite returning to training just this week. "Marcus Rashford was in trouble but he played", said Mourinho.

Paul Pogba says he wants to be trusted more by manager Jose Mourinho.

'[I'm] very pleased, very pleased.

Mourinho's transfer frustration was evident again when he discussed the Leicester performance.

The Guardian reports that Manchester United were not willing to go ahead with some of Jose Mourinho's targets in the summer as they did not believe the players were right for the team. We thought [he could play a] maximum 60 minutes, but he managed 80.
