Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho got off to the best possible start as he guided his side to Community Shield triumph on Sunday.

United defeated Leicester City 2-1 courtesy of goals from Jesse Lingard and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Swede’s late winner coming after Jamie Vardy had earlier equalised for the Premier League champions.

That goal came after a mistake from United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, who carelessly played the ball back in the direction of David de Gea without looking, only for Vardy to pounce as he did so often last season.

Fellaini continues to be a figure who divides opinion at Old Trafford, with some hailing his work rate but the majority questioning his place not only in the starting XI but the entire squad.

It will be interesting to see how Mourinho views his mistake; after all, there is no space for such carelessness in a side managed by the Portuguese.
