Alexis Sánchez had a slow start to his Manchester United career
Jamie Vardy pulled a goal back for Leicester in stoppage time to give them some reward for a good performance against last season's runners-up. "I think we are more head coaches than managers", he said.
However, Mourinho insisted on the eve of the season's curtain raiser Pogba is happy at Old Trafford and, despite just returning to training on Monday after his exertions in helping Les Bleus win a second World Cup, Pogba has been handed the armband. "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was wonderful".
"I am very pleased for Luke Shaw. He made one mistake in 90 minutes, he was very good defensively".
The talented playmaker will be missed by Leicester who signed James Maddison to replace him.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the more outspoken critics of the shortened window with time running out for Spurs to make a single signing this summer.
But Mourinho must finally get the best from his star midfielder and Alexis Sanchez to avoid his third season in charge turning sour as it did in his second spell at Chelsea and Real Madrid. Eric Bailly did superbly to deny Iheanacho, and Vardy bundled Shaw off the ball to send in a cross that Gray nearly flicked home.
Mourinho has been without some of his key players over the past month or so as important members of his squad got an extended break following the World Cup.
It was the first senior goal for former England and Southampton defender Shaw, on the 23-year-old left-back's 141st appearance.
As ESPN's Rob Dawson says: "Mourinho and Pogba's frosty relationship is a puzzle Manchester United must solve".
"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches, maybe three matches because after Spurs there is national team and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better, is to focus on players available. Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".
Leicester manager Claude Puel praised his players. "It was more hard in the second half".
Speaking at a news conference to preview Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester, Mourinho told reporters he does not expect any deadline-day activity at Old Trafford, despite also being linked to centre-backs Toby Alderweireld, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng.
