'But I find myself in the beginning of the Premier League, with the market closed, I find myself in a situation that I thought I was not going to be in, but I think it's the last time I speak about it.

Nonetheless Mourinho was pleased with his team's display, singling out Pogba and Shaw for particular praise, and the overall spirit.

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline, but an inflated market has made the challenge of improving defensively an even tougher ask.

Brazil global Fred, highly-rated but raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players. "I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard". But over, finished, the market is closed.

'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it.

The manager pointed to those players who, alongside Pogba, had little training due to post-World Cup breaks. "[Romelu] Lukaku and [Maroaune] Fellaini were available to help the team. Marcus Rashford was in trouble but he played", said Mourinho.

Chief football writer Daniel Taylor writes: "United's conclusion was that in most cases Mourinho had targeted defenders who were no better than those they already had".

"He needs to get off to a good start this season, there's no doubt about that", Scholes told the Daily Express.

"He arrived Monday, happy, proud, a desire to work", said Mourinho.

Leicester manager Claude Puel must similarly decide whether to include Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire. "We allowed them to remain deep and close the space".
