Manchester United 2-1 Leicester City

Manchester United kicked off the new Premier League season with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw in Friday night’s clash with Leicester City. World Cup winner Pogba, who was handed the captain’s armband, got the hosts off to a flying start with a confident and composed penalty after Daniel Amartey’s inexplicable handball, placing the ball in the top corner after an audaciously slow run-up.

The visitors mustered a decent response, though United always looked in control and the game appeared to be put beyond doubt late on by the rampaging Shaw – though Leicester netted an even later consolation.
