Manchester United kicked off the Premier League season with three points against Leicester, but post-match interventions from Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba hinted that tensions may linger behind closed doors at Old Trafford.
Fittingly, Paul Pogba's first ever goal in the EPL came against Leicester during the 2016 Season.
"We play against a team that invest more than us".
'I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League with the market closed in the situation I thought I was not going to be in, ' said Mourinho.
It's a tough call but it seems like Pogba will remain for now, even if his relationship with Mourinho is strained.
Mourinho left no doubt as to how much he valued Pogba's efforts on the night, adding: "Paul was fantastic - his contribution was awesome". Paul [Pogba] was fantastic - his contribution was incredible, but the fuel was disappearing every minute, so we were in trouble and we needed [Scott] McTominay and [Marouane] Fellaini to give me that balance in midfield.
We have big and multi-functional coaching staffs, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.
The midfielder returned on Monday and, although he has not featured in any pre-season friendlies, he was thrust straight back into the action four days later as the Premier League got under way once again at Old Trafford, United winning 2-1 on Friday. It's the best feeling I have had in my career. I don't know their identity right now, I don't know how they can dig deep and turn a losing position to victory and they style that they'll come out with. "Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis".
The Foxes impressed in the first period, with new-boys James Maddison and Ricardo Perreira both testing David De Gea in the United goal.
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.
There were a few nervous moments for United at the end when Vardy pulled a goal back.
