World Cup victor Paul Pogba's 3rd-minute penalty and a late goal from Luke Shaw gave Manchester United a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford in the opening game of the Premier League season on Friday.
Pogba's penalty two minutes was, what I guess you can say, weird? The French midfielder, who captained and scored in the match, said this on his social media channels: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on". "I think it's the last time we speak about it, it's over, finished, the market is closed and no more talk about it".
Other fans were not so sympathetic. "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". For us it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought.

It was a decent start to the season considering the number of injury and fitness worries that United had to contend with, but Friday's skipper is not getting carried away.
Jose is the type of manager who gives someone the captaincy for the right reasons and I think he chose to give Pogba some responsibility for managing the game and the players around him, which was a very clever move.
"Pogba was a monster, we thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed the 80". "Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left-back's display.
