Manchester United down Leicester in Premier League opener

Manchester United's Paul Pogba in action against Liverpool during the FA Premier League match at Anfield

I've been to the World Cup in Brazil and that was fantastic so I want to be in the World Cups and the Euros'.

'So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches.

Pogba is joined in midfield by Brazil worldwide Fred, who was signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in June, while there is also a place for Andreas Pereira following his eye-catching pre-season displays for United.

The United boss confirmed that Antonio Valencia has been ruled out with a calf injury that he picked up in pre-season while Sergio Romero is still recovering from knee surgery that he sustained before the World Cup.

After enduring a fairly mixed-to-torrid spell at Manchester United thus far, Luke Shaw put in a man-of-the-match winning performance tonight for the club's opening Premier League fixture against Leicester City.

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.

But Mourinho, entering his third season in charge at Old Trafford, claimed, in typically confrontational fashion, that there are no problems in his squad or in his commitment to the club.

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".

This season Shaw is looking to turn that all around, and make himself a Three Lions regular and somebody who is relied upon for major tournaments.

Taylor added: "The suspicion of United's hierarchy is the manager is taking a short-term view rather than thinking more strategically about what would be better for the club in the coming years". He is a great manager, I really enjoyed working with him.

The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Ashley Young, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini will all need to be assessed ahead of the game to see if they are fit to face Leicester after only returning to training this week.

It's clear that Mourinho and Pogba don't always have the best relationship but the French midfielder is a huge talent and someone who could play a key part in bringing trophies back to Old Trafford.

The goal was Shaw's first in the Premier League in 104 appearances in England's top flight.

United finished second in the Premier League last season but ended up a massive 19 points behind champions and big rivals Manchester City.

Manchester United reportedly wanted to sign Rafael Varane.
