Paul Pogba transfer rumors: Barcelona or Manchester United?

Mourinho lent heavily on those that served him well during a disrupted pre-season at Old Trafford, but such options are no slouches and it showed after 77 seconds when Shaw fed Alexis Sanchez to get away a shot handled by Daniel Amartey. It was a good match with three good teams, in my opinion.

After a depleted squad took part in their pre-season tour of the USA, who will start tonight?

United is further hamstrung with a host of key players, including Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, who were involved in the later stages of the World Cup, limiting their preseason preparations.

Last season was a turbulent one for Pogba as he was dropped several times by Mourinho due to inconsistent performances, but this display of faith from his manager so soon after returning from holiday should provide an early boost at the beginning of the 2018-19 campaign.

"It's important to win and play well", Mourinho said.

"I didn't have any pre-season games, I came back on Monday so it was very hard for the legs". Only three players - Fred, Diogo Dalot, and Lee Grant were signed during the summer window, much to the frustration of the Portuguese tactician.

"Fantastic spirit and I think periods of very good football and in the periods where Leicester were stronger we played as a team and we coped well with the situation".

Pushed on whether there would be any ins or outs on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no (nothing will happen)".
