Picture: Manchester United key duo named in BBC’s Team of the Week

Manchester United are back. Jose Mourinho guided his side to a simply stunning 4-1 victory at home to the current champions, Leicester City. From start to finish the players were bang at it and really put The Foxes under immense pressure as they earned all three points.

This morning, Garth Crooks named his Team of the Week for the BBC, and Manchester United managed to get two names involved in an extremely strong looking side; containing the likes of Sergio Aguero, Philippe Coutinho and Laurent Koscielny.

First up we have Chris Smalling. He spent most of the summer injured, and his first few performances felt like that was the case. However, he was back to his best over the weekend, as he put in a real solid display, including bagging himself a goal with an excellent header.

The other red in the side is Paul Pogba. Manchester United’s £89million man had a relatively quiet first few games, but he really picked it up against Leicester in a game that is sure to boost his confidence. Scoring his first goal would’ve helped that cause.
