The hosts eventually ran out 2-1 winners, but it was an uncomfortable ending as Jamie Vardy netted a late goal, before Kasper Schmeichel nearly equalised.

Luke Shaw was the scorer, netting after an initial poor touch, with what was his first-ever goal in senior football.

"Pogba was a monster", Mourinho said.

- Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 10, 2018With only minutes left in the game Manchester United defender, Luke Shaw, earned his first Premier League goal following a superb cross from Alexis Sanchez, that he fired into the back of the foxes' net.

United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

Coy on what United could achieve this season, Pogba knows the importance of aiming for success with the club and the responsibility that came with wearing the armband.

'I won't be full with a World Cup. I need more changes. That [the World Cup] is in the past, it is part of history. I was thinking how do you get the power into it.

Pogba also reinstated that his focus is now completely on the Premier League.

"It was not easy to manage the game from the touchline, but I told the players we had good periods, lots of glimpses of the type of football we wanted to play". Just a few days ago FC Barcelona offered Man United more than € 100 million to pry him away from Old Trafford.

"With the players that we have...of course we're Manchester United, we have to look at the top of the league". "For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans for many months. We just want to go up and that's it".

The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup victor, but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most. The result? A Manchester United victory.

"It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored. It's the best feeling I have had in my career".

"If I miss, I know what I can hear after that". That said, I have made a decision to match the scoreline in giving two positives and one negative.

He concluded by talking about his aspirations to play for England.

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

But this is the last time I speak about it.

Vishwanath, an engineer like many young Indians, is a big sports enthusiast. For me, it was a dream come true.

The most unlikely goal-scorer was followed by the most unlikely Mourinho celebration.
