While Mourinho was happy with his team's effort against Leicester, he refused to be drawn on whether his team would be genuine title contenders this year after finishing in second place, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, last season.
While several pundits already consider the Premier League a two-horse race between Manchester City and Liverpool this year, Moyes believes United will take some beating. [Shaw's] game was very complete, even if I forget the goal, of course an important goal for us, but the performance was very complete. "They'll either be top, which I can't see, or that'll be it". "That's the main thing, get the players in".
Mourinho was willing to cut Martial free and, behind the scenes, he has been withering in his assessment of the player.
Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty.
"That's football management. I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches". But again, the perception of the people that reads can be different, but I like my players and my group. Juan Mata was brilliant at picking the right pass and Andreas Pereira was also very steady.
"I don't want to speak too soon after one game but I want to be up there with the best left-backs in the world", he said. The Belgium-born Brazilian was calm and composed in the United engine room, quietly breaking up play and setting the Reds off on attacks. "I was meant to come inside and I managed to get in front of him and put it in".
Lindelof and Bailly - together at the back?
Jose Mourinho received an instant reward for handing Paul Pogba the captaincy when the World Cup-winning midfielder paved the way for Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Leicester as the English Premier League season opened on Friday.
"Jose will understand and he will know that, as much as he says". Moyes told BBC Five Live. Mourinho's looking and he wants to win now.
