"Of course it makes me proud, it makes me happy to wear this (armband) at a big club like Manchester United", said Pogba.

United have so far signed three players this summer - Brazil midfielder Fred for £47m, Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Mourinho's targets for that position were primarily Leicester City's Harry Maguire, Jérôme Boateng of Bayern Munich and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham. He was also asked a follow-up question to clarify that there would be no incomings or outgoings throughout the day. "The information I have is no", he replied matter-of-factly.

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw says that scoring his first senior goal "is the best feeling" that he has had in his career.

Everton have a great chance to record their first win of the campaign next Saturday when they take on Southampton at Goodison Park and will be hoping the Saints replicate the form that made them relegation fodder last season. It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

Open victor Sloane Stephens for the title on Sunday. "We played a good match", Stephens said of their showdown at Roland Garros. The Romanian broke Barty in the opening game and broke again for a 4-1 lead en route to taking the first set.

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.

WORST PLAYER - Nobody stood out as being particularly bad in this Wolves side - the problem was more that few players seemed willing to step forward and grab the initiative. We believe in all of them. "In Championship Manager you can just press a button".

VAR may not be ideal, but implemented in tonight's game and Marco Silva and the Everton faithful may have been travelling home feeling a lot more satisfied.

"I look to Marco like a father".

His side, who blew away the Championship last season, looked unimpressive for the most part but will need more from those players who helped them seal promotion last term.
