Earlier this summer United bought midfielder Fred, full-back Diogo Dalot and back-up keeper Lee Grant, but it was in central defence where Mourinho was really seeking new faces. I think one defensive mistake and probably the linesman could help him and give a free-kick against Leicester.
"We should start the Premier League with a win and we did", he said.
It wasn't particularly entertaining or engaging, but United got the job done. Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.
And when Amartey was substituted, it didn't get much better - Luke Shaw completely lost Rachid Ghezzal for his goal in the 83rd minute, while Ricardo Pereira was ineffective right-wing and only started to look like a Premier League player when switched to right-back.

Manchester United finished 19 points behind Premier League champions Manchester City last season, while bitter rivals Liverpool FC have spent nearly £200m on new signings this summer.

Mourinho had plenty of praise for Pogba, who is not yet at full fitness following France's World Cup win.
He also said he'd moved past the excitement of the summer, adding: "Winning the World Cup is in the past". 'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it.
"Pogba was a monster", Mourinho said.More news: Michael Ball gives verdict on Everton’s summer transfer business
With 271 appearances and a Premier League winners' medal under his belt with Leicester, nobody can question Wes Morgan's commitment to the Foxes' cause.
The midfielder's agent, Mino Raiola, is also not happy with how the Portuguese tactician has treated his client, and is looking for ways to get the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor out of Old Trafford.
"Martial in the last 20 minutes could have given us the second goal but I couldn't make that change".
