The 2018/2019 Premier League season kicked off today with a Manchester United win over Leicester City. United won the game with two goals to one, courtesy of goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.
An extra time goal from Jamie Vardy gave Leicester City their consolation goal.
United manager, Jose Mourinho, was able to call on Pogba, who only returned this week to training and handed him the captain’s armband.
The France midfielder stepped up and put his side in front from the penalty spot, after Daniel Amartey was adjudged to have handled the ball in the area.
Despite the home side’s lead, it was Leicester that dominated the game, although they failed to score.
Luke Shaw pounced on a Juan Mata pass to make it 2-0, before Jamie Vardy pulled one back in the dying minutes.
