Pogba in line for Man Utd captaincy after 'superb' pre-season attitude

Romelu Lukaku at Anderlecht

The Belgium worldwide has been looking to force a move away from Old Trafford over the summer and has recently been training with Vincent Kompany's Anderlecht, away from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first team squad. I think Inter are heading in the right direction and I needed a new challenge.

"We are missing internationals and big players but I don't want that excuse", said Lampard. "We got a good deal and he is happy so both parties ended that deal as it should be", Solskjaer added.

'His summer has been one of ups and downs, as we all know, ' said United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Marcus Rashford's second goal, which put United up 3-0, caught almost the entire Chelsea team out of position.

Abraham and Emerson struck the frame of the goal before half-time and Chelsea played some attractive football until United's powerful counter-attacking play exposed the away side's defensive weaknesses.

"He is so composed on the ball and gives the team another dimension". Within the team and the club we are feeling very confident and we don't feel that negativity.

One player that is likely to play a huge part in how United's season progresses is Harry Maguire.

In terms of the game itself, Chelsea got off to an electric start.

Asked at the press conference how Trump was received, Brown said, "He was received well by the patients, as you'd expect". Jeremy Ganger (GAYN'-jur) vividly remembers the gunman's "dead stare" as he advanced toward Ned Peppers early Sunday.

And with nine minutes remaining, Pogba showed his quality again as he broke forward before releasing substitute Daniel James to score.

"He's a leader, an established worldwide, a goal threat a very, very good defender - and also a very composed ball player. I do expect him to stay", he said.

We saw against Chelsea why United sold Romelu Lukaku, because although he is a proven goalscorer, he would not have fitted into that team.

A good start to the campaign will be vital for United, and I actually fancy them to have one. "You look to the performance of Mason Mount, the performance of Tammy Abraham, you look to the performance even of [Andreas] Christensen and for matches of this dimension you need a little bit more".

I don't just mean against the other leading teams either, because United don't play another side from the expected top six until they face Arsenal on 30 September.

However, Mourinho, sacked in December by United, admitted he did not have that belief himself at the start of last season.

Probably the best moment of the game was seeing his celebration when he scored United's fourth goal just after coming on.
