Kasper Schmeichel Was Less Than Flattering About Luke Shaw's Goal

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini will be assessed after returning late following their World Cup exertions, while Anthony Martial's availability is unclear after missing the final pre-season friendly at Bayern Munich.

Mourinho was left irritated by the lack of signings, says the Guardian, as his bosses believed the targets were no better than the players he already had.

"I see him very well but we need words with that small group to see if they can give us a hand".

Shaw wasn't positive his goal meant he'd remain a first-choice starter for Mourinho, but he said he's set his sights high.

"He had the first three or four days of training and first couple of matches where he played 40 or 50 minutes". But Liverpool did its business early in splashing more than 170 million pounds (US$220 million) on Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri. Still, it was a display to suggest this could be his season in the same way he left his mark on the World Cup.

So we got his thoughts on the relative strengths and weaknesses of the leading clubs after a shortened summer window off the back of a World Cup and a Transfer Deadline Day that has been radically brought forward to today. "There is not a story".

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United got both in their opener against Leicester at Old Trafford and, for a week at least, the storm clouds around Old Trafford will lift.

"I think what Jose Mourinho saw and what all of us saw in the summer was Paul Pogba smashing the middle of the France changing room, calling on the rest of the players, demanding more from them".

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho.

"I'm going to enjoy this season".

Pogba played a key role for France as Didier Deschamps' men triumphed in Russian Federation last month, though his participation in the latter stages of the tournament meant he was late in joining up with his club colleagues.

They had the lead after three-minutes at home to Leicester, in front of 75,000 fans on the opening night of the Premier League, but they didn't really strive to build on their advantage.
