Pogba, in his first outing since winning the World Cup with France, completed 84 minutes against the Foxes before being replaced by Marouane Fellaini. The end of the window that has sparked numerous claims that Mourinho's side has definitely ruled themselves out of contention for the Premier League trophy, with some even claiming they are at risk of falling out of the top six altogether.
Pogba, fresh from his triumph in Russian Federation with France but also the subject of recent transfer speculation, was named captain by manager Jose Mourinho and took responsibility for the penalty after a handball by Daniel Amartey, slowly shuffling up before beating Kasper Schmeichel. "It's a different team, obviously. It's the best feeling I have had in my career".
The goal scorers for United - Pogba and Shaw spoke after the match.
"It's not too much at £50million because ultimately you've just got to get the players in".
"No, I just have to be myself and do what I know, do what I can do and do what I know to do".
He is the best left-back at the club when he is fit and flying so I am glad he has got his goal, because it should take a bit of pressure off him. "I didn't have any pre-season games, I came back on Monday so it was very hard for the legs".

But, there was no dearth of suitors in his pursuit, with Manchester United and Everton showing a lot of interest in him. New Everton defender Yerry Mina says that he is looking forward to the challenge of competing in the Premier League .
Pogba was pushed on his response and said that "if you're not happy, you can not give your best" when asked about what represents happiness and comfort for him.
'If you're not happy doing what you're doing, there's no point doing it, right?
"We don't really have one", said the Frenchman when asked the question. When you are comfortable, when people trust everyone, are good in the head, it's going to be easier.
This could hint that Shaw will play a big part in this season, and if the backing from his once worst enemy continues, then who's to say he won't have a massive season?
"I find this really unusual", he said. I came in the academy, I grew up.
"If I played Scott, I would have two kids and a new player [Fred] in midfield".
They face Brighton away next Sunday and will be hoping that more of their players are back to peak fitness. "They're all here, they help me, my teammates, obviously it makes me want to give them love and give them good performances on the pitch".
