Gary Neville reacts to Paul Pogba's 'weird' penalty

It lead the Portuguese to vent his feelings after the final whistle at Old Trafford and reiterate his warning for the new season. "I doubt he'll be going anywhere this season".

"If you are enjoying what you do you give your the best".

Thursday's transfer deadline came and went without United adding one or two more players to the squad, something Mourinho believes they badly needed.

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.

"So, obviously it's easier for a player to be on the same page with all the group - the manager was inside, the physio, the kitman, we were all a group in the team".

He wrote: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on". They spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have.

The Frenchman also declined to mention Mourinho when speaking to reporters after the game, insisting that he gives his all in every match for the fans, his team-mates and those that trust him.

The path to the three points began with a Paul Pogba penalty kick just two minutes in after a hand ball, and the World Cup victor with France made no mistake, finishing calmly into the far post.

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. "We thought maximum [he could play] 60 minutes, but he managed 80".

Pogba resisted the pleas of Sanchez to take the spot-kick and after a prolonged stuttering run up, dispatched his shot into the top corner giving Kasper Schmeichel no chance to repeat his penalty saving heroics at the World Cup for Denmark.

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was incredible but the fuel was disappearing".

All does not appear well behind the scenes, despite Mourinho saying on the eve of the Leicester match that when the media "repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that (is) repeated 1,000 times".

"Of course on the pitch we have a second and third choice, in case of not confidence or for some reason does not want to take, but he was ready". 'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it.
