Pogba and Shaw secure a win for Manchester United in the Premier League opening
The Red Devils finish first in the Premier League opening match against Leicester as Paul Pogba seized a penalty to score the first goal in the Premier League first round whilst Luke Shaw sealed the result at Old Trafford .
Despite Leicester being the controlling force in the first period, after United made the lead through captain Pogba, they still lost after Luke Shaw shattered their defense with his first senior career goal in a little over 80th mins of the game.
However Leciester striker, Richard Vardy swung in and made slight the gap as he scored a goal that underwhelmed Manchester’s winning in the 94th minute.
Leceister Football Club’s boss, Claude Puel in a chat with BBC Sport told that his team performed well, despite the bad result which was due to the lack of energy in the second half.
According to the French football manager, that his team conceded an early goal ‘is harsh’ and they deserved better.
” It was a good game, a good performance from my team. Certainly we lacked more energy in the second half. That’s normal for the first game”.
“We conceded an early goal , it was harsh . it was not a good result but it’s a good performance. We deserved a different result , we deserved a minimum of a draw” he said
