Manchester United fans make the same point about Matteo Darmian's struggles

Jose Mourinho insisted Manchester United are in for a "difficult" season despite kicking off the campaign with a 2-1 win over Leicester at Old Trafford.

Mourinho gave United's hierarchy a list of players he wanted to sign before the window closed on Thursday, but the deadline passed without any further additions.

Martin Fisher: Jose Mourinho rarely smiled last season and his expression hasn't changed after a summer of frustration.

The France star has been the source of much discussion but impressed, putting rumours of a move to Barcelona behind him.

On top of his transfer troubles, Mourinho had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with. "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was awesome".

Harry Maguire is undoubtedly Leicester's first-choice centre-back, and rightly so, but, with Jonny Evans now waiting in the wings, Morgan could find his starting place under threat this season.

The biggest news is World Cup victor Paul Pogba being named as captain; whether this is a permanent decision remains to be seen.

Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird? I needed more changes, but I couldn't so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view.

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.

United's performance on Friday failed to build on Paul Pogba's early penalty, as they were dominated by Leicester for spells before Luke Shaw scored an all-important second goal in the closing minutes.

"I think it will be a hard season for everybody, but I think it's the last time we speak about it. I think we are more the head coach than the manager", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

However, he can still rely on one of the world´s best goalkeepers as David de Gea put his poor World Cup showing behind him with a fine save to prevent Maddison levelling.

He went on to repeat his sentiments that United are in for a tough season, after they overcame opponents who spent more cash in the summer transfer market.

Vardy almost made a vital contribution as provider when he outmuscled Shaw and picked out Gray in the middle who was denied by another fine save by De Gea.

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. 'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it.
