Many were surprised that Mourinho chose to leave the Manchester United forward on the bench, particularly given he was not at the World Cup in Russian Federation.
Manchester United boss Mourinho said: "Mr Scudamore must be happy, it's a good way to start the Premier League".
"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs (and Burnley on August 27 and September 1 respectively) there is (a) national team (break) and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better".

The players gave everything, they gave what they had. They (Leicester) spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".
'For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans for many months.
'We have big and multi-functional coaching staff, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.
However, Spurs haven't sold any of them, and they may now hope that European clubs come in with bids in the coming weeks, given that the market closes around Europe on August 31.
