It was definitely a positive night for United, who picked up three points against hard opponents - and there is lots more to come from them.
"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho.
"I think he deserves respect and people to be very happy about him".
"[Luke] Shaw, Andreas Pereira, [Eric] Bailly, [Matteo] Darmian, they were comfortable to play 90 mins".
The opaque reference to "what's going on" may also be a source of concern for United fans desperate to see him remain and flourish at the club for a long time. I need more changes.
"I had only two options: Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us". The Guardian reports that Mourinho's wishlist was vetoed by United as there were concerns that "he should not be allowed to get his way if it meant potentially wasting tens of millions of pounds on a short-term fix". Luke Shaw really did score a goal on Friday night.
"That's football management. I think football is changing. Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis", said Pogba.
It's Shaw's victor. He scored his first senior team goal with a lovely move around his defender and a fine finish to the far post.
Leicester have spent the past few weeks battling United, who tried to sign center-back Harry Maguire after the World Cup.
Lindelof and Bailly - together at the back?
José Mourinho appeared to take aim at Ed Woodward, Manchester United's executive vice-chairman, for not sanctioning all of his transfer targets, with the manager saying maybe his title should be downgraded to "head coach".
"Of course, we have second or third choice in case he is not confident or some reason doesn't want to take it but he was ready and of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup because it's something in a competition like that every player trains a lot and he was vert confident".
Bailly can be a bit rash and possibly needs a voice in his ear as he is about to dive into a tackle to say "stand up, stand up" but he got away with it against Leicester and is clearly a good defender. If you have round pegs in round holes, and all of them are doing the right job at the same time, then you are going to do well.
