Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has hailed new signing Harry Maguire for his influence during the game against Chelsea at the weekend.

Pogba and Manchester United welcomed Chelsea to the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday evening in their Premier League opener and it ended in an emphatic win for the Red Devils.

Manchester United thrashed their top four rivals 4-0 to start the season on an excellent note.

After the game, Paul Pogba was full of praise for Harry Maguire who was playing in his first competitive game for Manchester United.

The Frenchman described the England international centre back as a leader in a chat with reporters in his first interview at the end of the game.

Harry Maguire was a key player for Manchester United as he helped the Red Devils keep a clean sheet.

Manchester United weathered a difficult start against Chelsea before star forward Marcus Rashford was brought down in the Blues penalty box by Kurt Zouma.

Rashford picked himself up to dispatch the spot kick and give Manchester United an 18th minute lead.

French international Anthony Martial doubled the advantage for Manchester United midway into the second half before Rashford added a third goal two minutes later.

Another new signing Daniel James wrapped up the game with a fourth goal nine minutes from time.

Harry Maguire became the world’s most expensive defender earlier this month after Manchester United paid £80m for his transfer from Leicester City.
