However, United saw out the rest of second-half stoppage time to start the season with three points and maintain Mourinho's unbeaten record in Premier League openers with nine wins and one draw over 10 matches.

The future of Manchester United and French global midfielder Paul Pogba at Old Trafford remains a mystery as the transfer window slowly begins to close as conflicting reports continue to surface.

"Like always we want to keep improving and keep bringing trophies to Manchester United because success motivates us".

A dispiriting UEFA Champions League exit against Sevilla in the last 16 also did little to engender a feelgood factor around Old Trafford, much like Mourinho's regular gripes concerning player availability and post-FIFA World Cup scheduling since his squad began preparations for the 2018-19 campaign.
