"I think he's a fantastic player, he proved it again at the World Cup after not playing so many games last season".
Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred.
The Frenchman, when asked after the game whether he was happy at the club, said: "There are things I can not say, otherwise I will get fined". We needed to score in this moment, a strong period of domination in the first-half.
Paul Pogba - who was named captain by Mourinho - got them off to a flying start converting a penalty in the third minute.
"Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left back's display.
City were making United rock, yet the hosts held firm and ended the half well.
"I want to be back in the England squad and involved in competitions like the World Cup".
"The second half was a little more hard without the necessary energy to push a little more". I've tried to help him feel at home so he can play better and better and he feels comfortable. "It's a good way to start the Premier League".
Leicester came close to an equaliser though when substitute Jamie Vardy robbed Shaw and found Demarai Gray whose flick forced another good save out of De Gea. That missed chance didn't matter in the end, as United managed to get their 2 goal not long afterwards. Following this, Man United looked to slow down the game and seal the victory.
Leicester City battled to find their way back into the match but their dominance fail to lead to a goal.
Manchester United will be looking to mount a serious Premier League title challenge this season as they bid to try and bounce back form their trophyless campaign last term. Though the performance wasn't flawless we managed to get the result in the end and we an only hope that this is just a starting point and that United can continue to improve all the way through the season.
