    We'll leave you there for the night. Thanks for joining us as the curtains were raised on the season. Keep your eye on the BBC website this evening for reaction to the game. 

    And also, you can watch the highlights later on TV...

  3. Post update

    Jose Mourinho on the imminent signing of Paul Pogba: "Finally. It’s amazing that such a good player is with us. Finally we have him. He comes to a winning side - a team who have their last two matches, in the FA Cup and today. He has to work hard to come to the team."

  4. Post update

    Jose Mourinho on his decision to bring off Juan Mata, who was only a substitute himself: "I think he played very well. He gave me exactly what I needed. 

    "The rules allow six changes, I had made five and I wanted to stop the game. I need to take off the smallest player because we are expecting a lot of long balls. He is the smallest one. 

    "We want to win. Everyone is happy in the end."

  5. Post update

    Jose Mourinho on Marouane Fellaini's poor backpass to set up Jamie Vardy's goal: "[It was] the mistake of the slow pitch. 

    "Before the game I touched the pitch and thought we're in trouble. We wanted a quick pitch. I don't know if they forgot to water the pitch."

  6. 'It wasn't a fantastic performance'

    Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho told BT Sport: "The first half performance was much better than the second. The team isn't fit enough yet. 

    "When Leicester increased the pace, they had three quick players and changed the game. It's an important victory but we have lots of work to do. I would be not ambitious if I said it was a fantastic performance. It wasn't. It's always important to start with a trophy.

    "Zlatan will be more dangerous when we are more dominant and play closer to the box. He's not a fast player like Jamie Vardy, who can play 50 yards from the box. He needs the team to play and produce chances for him. We need to change this."

  7. Leicester facts

    Leicester scored with their first shot on target, which was also Jamie Vardy’s first shot in the match.

    Vardy has scored twice and assisted another goal in his last four games at Wembley Stadium (three for England, one for Leicester).

    No player had more touches (97) or made more passes (79) than Danny Drinkwater.

  8. Villa trail on Championship return

    Sheffield Wednesday have gone ahead in the 85th minute against Aston Villa, Fernando Forestieri with the goal. Live text here.

  9. Man Utd facts

    Manchester United have won the Community Shield on 21 occasions, a record figure (17 outright wins and four shared titles).

    Indeed, the Red Devils have won the Community Shield in six of their last seven appearances (2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2016).

    Jesse Lingard is the first Manchester United player to score in the FA Cup final and subsequent Community Shield since Eric Cantona in 1996

    Indeed, he is the first player to do this since Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey in 2014.

    Steve Howes: Zlatan compares Utd to Milan, guess he prefers to forget his time at Barca. Utd have spent so much of course they are big again.

    Isaac Dee: Didn't Zlatan play for Barcelona? How come "The only one [club] I can compare it [Man Utd] to is Milan"? 

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic hated his one season at Barcelona. He definitely didn't forget to mention them (see 18:03 BST).

  14. Post update

    Jose Mourinho gets his medal and now so do the Manchester United players. And Wayne Rooney lifts the Community Shield. United win the first (sort-of) trophy of the season.

    And now here comes the champions. Jose Mourinho signs a few autographs on his way up. His players are quite a bit behind him, he's flying up those steps!

  17. Post update

    This is the kind of thing people like to say is a "classy touch".

  18. Post update

    Leicester are coming up the stairs to get their runners-up medals. 

    Not sure there's any need for Community Shield runners-up medals, being honest.

  19. Zlatan is 'super happy'

    Manchester United matchwinner Zlatan Ibrahimovic told BT Sport: "It feels good. The first official game, we play for a trophy and we win. This is my 31st trophy. I'm super happy. Hopefully I can win much more than this.

    "It was a difficult game. We played against a good team. They were very strong. Something big is going on with our team. We begin with a trophy.

    "I feel very good. The team is fantastic. Good team-mates, good spirit. The coach does everything to win. It is probably the biggest club I played in. The only one I can compare it to is Milan." 

  20. 'He lets you play free'

    Manchester United scorer Jesse Lingard on BT Sport: "He [New boss Jose Mourinho] has given the front four a lot more licence to change positions. He lets you play free."

    He also adds he should be OK to play in their Premier League opener at Bournemouth next Sunday after coming off with a foot injury.
