Paul Merson predicts where Man United will finish this season

Man Utd transfer news Zlatan Ibrahimovic Toby Alderweireld

The French midfielder admits United's performance against Leicester was not impressive, but claims he was happy to see the team take their first three points of the season.

Leicester pushed for a reply and got one in injury time in rather freaky fashion, with sub Jamie Vardy heading in from point-blank range after Ricardo Perreira's cross had come back off the post. Paul [Pogba] was fantastic - his contribution was incredible, but the fuel was disappearing every minute, so we were in trouble and we needed [Scott] McTominay and [Marouane] Fellaini to give me that balance in midfield.

"It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us", the 55-year-old said.

As I was saying on BBC Radio 5 live on Friday, United have a very strong squad.

Luke made one mistake - towards the end of the game when he was caught in possession inside his own area by Vardy - but he will not need to be told about it. The talented playmaker will be missed by Leicester who signed James Maddison to replace him.

They deliberated for three days before awarding Johnson $250 million in punitive damages and $39 million in compensatory damages. Monsanto is now facing hundreds of lawsuits, many of which were filed after that 2015 announcement.

Matteo Darmian tested Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel at the near post early into a second half that United started with bundles of possession, but few clear-cut chances.

After a summer spent continually lamenting his lot at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho was relatively chipper in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

A good oppor-tunity came when Pogba fed Sanchez and he set up Mata, who had a shot that was deflected just wide.

But it was far from one-way traffic.

With seven minutes remaining, he flicked the ball past a defender before sending a low left-footed strike into the net.

Two years after returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in a world-record deal, the 25-year-old is reported to be so unhappy that he has informed executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward of his desire to leave. Mourinho's looking and he wants to win now.

"It's important to win and play well, we played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us", said Mourinho. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".

Leicester manager Claude Puel praised his players.

Gave the penalty away to put Leicester 1-0 down early on with a ridiculous handball, booked in the second half before finally being substituted on 63 minutes, this was definitely a night to forget for Daniel Amartey.
