Man United 2-1 Leicester: Paul Pogba Scores! (Details)

Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw scored as Manchester United defeated Leicester City 2-1 in the first match of the 2018-19 Season.

The Reds Devils made a great start to the match, winning a penalty in the second minute when Daniel Amartey handled Alexis Sanchez's deflected shot.

Pogba then stepped up and scored the penalty placing the ball in the top-right corner above Kasper Schmeichel.

Left-back Luke Shaw then scored his first senior goal of his career in the 83rd minute to double United's lead.

Substitute Jamie Vardy scored a late goal for Leicester after Ricardo Perreira's cross had hit a post, and Foxes goalkeeper Schmeichel came forward for an injury-time corner but his header went wide.

"We thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed over 80," said the United boss.

"The decision belonged to Paul. I asked him and he made himself available and he was very good.

"Paul's contribution was amazing but the fuel was disappearing."

"Winning the World Cup is in the past. I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies."
