A World Cup victor with France at Russian Federation 2018, Pogba has been linked to LaLiga champions Barcelona and former club Juventus following a hard season under United manager Jose Mourinho last term.

"It's my style of taking penalties, I've always done it", he said.

"No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do". "But he just lifts it over [Leicester goalkeeper] Kasper Schmeichel and when you do that in the upper part of the net keepers never get them".

Leicester responded well though with new signing James Maddison forcing a fine save out of United keeper David De Gea as the visitors gave Mourinho's side plenty to think about.

Pogba was not the only United player to impress me. 'The manager was inside, the physio, the kitman, we were all a group.

"I chose to take it, I was one of the names and in the next game, I can leave it to Alexis, it's not a problem".

I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the Euros so there are more to win. "I doubt he'll be going anywhere this season".

"We saw the downtrodden Jose Mourinho last season and the difference was that they didn't win anything". I always love the club. [Shaw's] game was very complete, even if I forget the goal, of course an important goal for us, but the performance was very complete.

The Guardian reports that Manchester United were not willing to go ahead with some of Jose Mourinho's targets in the summer as they did not believe the players were right for the team.

Mourinho has clashed with the club's hierarchy in recent weeks and showed his frustration at not adding to his squad before Thursday's transfer deadline.

Yet, despite Mourinho's earlier warning that United face a "difficult" season after failing to be back him in the transfer market, a winning start did brighten the mood around Old Trafford.
