Manchester United beat Leicester City on Friday night to start the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Paul Pogba opened the scoring with a penalty in the third minute and Luke Shaw scored his first goal for the Reds, before Jamie Vardy nodded in one last consolation strike.

There were many things happening at Old Trafford, so ROBERT SUMMERSCALES of Sportsmail has put together some things that may have been lost.

Pogba takes rank

Alexis Sanchez won the United penalty when his shot in the first half separated from the arm of Daniel Amartey, via Wes Morgan.

The former Arsenal player seemed willing to take the kick, but Captain Pogba got a spot after a serious argument.

500 for José

The converted Pogba penalty was the Premier League goal number 500 scored by a team of José Mourinho.

Only 124 goals of Mourinho in 501 PL have been scored by United, and the other 377 came during his time at the former club Chelsea.

Slo-mo kick

Pogba took an age to score from the point when he made one of the slowest shots the Premier League has ever seen.

When he finally got to the ball, his shot was hit emphatically in the upper corner, but that did not stop him from receiving meme treatment on Twitter.

Neville gets soaked

Former United captain Gary Neville returned to Old Trafford as part of Sky's team of experts on Friday night.

Neville received a storm of applause from United fans.

It was also flooded with water by the sprinklers on the field as it presented a part-time coverage with Kelly Cates.

Scouts of Southgate

The manager of England, Gareth Southgate, was in the stands of Old Trafford to take a look at possible selections before the international break next month.

Southgate, who sat next to Bulgarian coach Roberto Martinez, will have enjoyed watching left-back Shaw score his first goal for United.

The foxes award the first goal of the Premier League for the third consecutive season

For the third year in a row, Leicester was involved in the annual Premier League event.

Not only have they lost all three of those season openers, they have always conceded first.

Leicester lost 4-3 to Arsenal last August after suffering a 2-1 loss to Hull 12 months earlier.

Leicester has now conceded the first goal in three consecutive seasons of the Premier League

Mourinho starts strong again

Unlike Leicester, United's boss, Mourinho, has a habit of starting the seasons well.

This has been the tenth time he has been in charge of the opening of the Premier League of a team and has never lost one, winning nine.

Fun photo alignment

With the beginning of a new season, arrives the alignment of the newly released.

The ace of Leicester, Harry Maguire, was seen rubbing his hands on the graphic before the game in motion, which used images recently taken in front of a green screen.

A Twitter user joked that it looked like the defender was offering a round of tea.

Wilfred Ndidi looked like he had an itchy elbow, while Pogba had a satisfied smile, as if he knew he was going to be the main man against Leicester.
