Manchester United vs Leicester City - predicted starting XI

Manchester United vs Leicester City - predicted starting XI

After a week in which Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Barcelona's interest piqued by the Frenchman's frosty relationship with Mourinho after he was repeatedly dropped last season, the Portuguese showed his faith in the midfielder by surprisingly handing him the armband.

After securing the signatures of Brazilian worldwide midfielder Fred and Portuguese teenage full-back Diogo Dalot early in the window, strengthening his centre-back options has been Mourinho's priority.

But RMC says Pogba has now put talk of a move to bed by vowing to stick around in Manchester until the end of the current campaign.

Leicester City will adopt a more possession-based game this season instead of their traditional counter-attacking style but will not find the transition easy when they visit Manchester United on Friday, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has said.

Manchester United finished 19 points behind Premier League champions Manchester City last season, while bitter rivals Liverpool FC have spent nearly £200m on new signings this summer.

"I think a lot will depend on how his team plays, you know".

Today was one of those days, as the Foxes not only had more possession but did more with it, outshooting United 13-8, although United had more shots on target (6-4). Marcus Rashford may as well have had the offside flag glued to his kit, Alexis Sanchez played about a dozen balls to nowhere and Paul Pogba, penalty aside, didn't seem to have the freedom to flow and dictate attack.

With just hours left before the summer transfer window closes, disgruntled Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he's not confident of signing any more players.

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I made a decision to take it. I think we are more the head coach than the manager", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

Despite missing a host of World Cup stars, City looked in ominous form as it dismissed Chelsea 2-0 to lift the Community Shield last weekend but faces a tough start as Arsenal begins the post-Arsene Wenger era at Emirates stadium on Sunday.

And the Frenchman finishes off his speech - which has been seen nearly 65,000 times - with a rousing call while holding his fist up saying: "Come on United". "I am happy with the performance to make this game in this condition, it's encouraging for the future". "I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies".
