Michael Owen warns Man United trio about ‘defining season’ at Old Trafford

A general view of Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium before the Premiership match against Liverpool at Old Trafford

As the clock passed the hour mark, Claude Puel made a pair of changes, bringing Vardy on for Maddison and new arrival Rachid Ghezzal for Amartey, with Mourinho subbing Markus Rashford for Lukaku shortly after.

The Premier League season kicks off tonight when United host Leicester City and all eyes will be on Mourinho.

But for all that could have been this summer, Mourinho certainly has the talent at his disposal to make this a successful season, especially if Pogba can replicate Friday night's display.

It's reported by The Sun that United were actually prepared to shell out £100m for French World Cup victor Varane, but Real Madrid were not interested in selling.

"I like my players".

Mauricio Pochettino will be bitterly disappointed at heading into the new season without a single new face, and he may yet end the month with some players leaving the club. "It depends on the music, but words for me don't come easy".

Last season may have been United's highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired but the 19-point gap to runaway Premier League champions Manchester City underlined the improvements required.

Despite slashing a club-record 60 million pounds on signing Riyad Mahrez, City has enjoyed a quiet window.

Gates admitted that at Manafort's behest, they later created a loan agreement for Lyovochkin's payment, though no loan existed. But while Laporta acknowledged that she regularly communicated with Gates, she said she believed Manafort was in the know.

United's top brass want to follow City by "developing young talents instead of going for big-money older stars" that Mourinho prefers.

As for Paul Pogba's stuttered run-up to take the penalty, we have no issue with that.

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his global future.

"They returned on Monday, they trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine that they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", he added.

What lies ahead for Jose and United?

Shaw forced a save from Kasper Schmeichel just past the 40-minute mark, settling a pass from Juan Mata after some nice build-up play from United before firing right at the Leicester keeper.

"You [the media] repeat 1,000 times my relations with my players is not good", Mourinho stated.
