Paul Pogba Named Manchester United Captain - Starting XI V Leicester Confirmed

Manchester United kick off the 2018-19 Premier League season as Leicester City travel to Old Trafford tonight.

The Daily Telegraph adds that United's board would only sanction the signing of a world-class defender such as Varane, but refused to bring in a "lesser" player, despite Mourinho's demands.

Hello good evening and welcome to the start of another English football season and If you are a big fan of football, then this must be bliss for you.

Jose Mourinho named Pogba as captain for the match, while Romelu Lukaku started on the bench for Manchester United as did Jamie Vardy for Leicester.

Twenty people died after a vintage World War II aircraft crashed into a Swiss mountainside, police said on Sunday (Aug 5). Daniel Knech of the Swiss safety investigation service SESE said the crew did not have time to send out a distress signal.

According to reports, United were ready to spend big on a world-class defender, with a £100million move for Raphael Varane considered before Real Madrid made it clear that the France global was not for sale. Luke Shaw really did score a goal on Friday night.

The 25-year-old, who was linked with Barcelona and Juventus but with United unwilling to sell , is delighted to be back in domestic action and claims his hunger for trophies remains as fierce as ever .

"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho. Paul Pogba couldn't play 90 minutes, Fred the same.

Pogba, who carried over his fine World Cup winning form into the first game and produced a complete performance as skipper, shook hands with the subs after being replaced for Fellaini, and though Martial extended his hand to his compatriot - his frustration at not coming on was clear.

It has been a hard summer for United boss Jose Mourinho and I said last week that I felt he needed to find some harmony within the club.

United were outstanding in the early stages and I think the Foxes were in shock at the way they came out of the blocks and took control of the game.

Mourinho did not get the new centre-half he wanted in the transfer window and, from the comments he made after the Leicester match about being a head coach instead of a manager, he is still not happy about it. It's the last time I speak about it. Martial in the last 20 minutes could have given us the second goal but I couldn't make that change.

"But every time he played, he did a great job and showed something great".

There is a mint green power button on this Pixel 3 XL as well, which differs from the orange button on the two-tone Pixel 2 XL. You will still find the main camera and LED flash on the top left-hand side with a fingerprint sensor on the back.

Shaw forced a save from Kasper Schmeichel just past the 40-minute mark, settling a pass from Juan Mata after some nice build-up play from United before firing right at the Leicester keeper.
