  • Joe Cole was sent off on his Liverpool debut against Arsenal in 2010

The only arrivals at United were Fred, Dalot and third choice goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Although there has been speculation about a deal for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld, there has been no offer from United while Leicester remain determined to retain England global Harry Maguire, who has four years left on his contract. However, there was no indication that it was a deliberate tactic on his part or that he was being economical with the truth. "The information I have is no", he replied matter-of-factly.

Pogba helped United to a 2-1 win over Leicester City in their season opener at Old Trafford on Friday night, scoring a penalty after two minutes. It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

"We could have won but I think we can be pleased with how we played and go on from here for the rest of the season".

After the game, Mourinho, missing several midfield options due to injury, praised Pogba for his willingness to start the game after only recently returning from his post-World Cup break.

Pogba, fresh from his triumph in Russian Federation with France but also the subject of recent transfer speculation, was named captain by manager Jose Mourinho and took responsibility for the penalty after a handball by Daniel Amartey, slowly shuffling up before beating Kasper Schmeichel. When you believe in one player to improve the squad, you have to do everything that is possible for us as a club to sign these players.

"Like I always say, I always give my best for the fans, for my team-mates, for the people that trust me", the midfielder said. "In Championship Manager you can just press a button".

"We are comfortable and confident with the way we are starting the game tomorrow". I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.
