Manchester United will hope to get an easy three points this week while Benfica will hope to cause an upset at home with the aid of their home fans.

Among the travelling players are still not fully fit Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw. Other players will be on display. "But it's a match we want to try and win".

This is not a grave problem yet, but could become one. I am at Manchester United and I have a contract and that is it.

But he cited the missing players as a key reason for the second half display - especially after Nemanja Matic's exertions over the global break. He played alongside Ander Herrera, but lack of substitutions in that area of pitch meant he had to finish the game. Their struggles mean they won't be able to contain United's threat.

In these games, there would be five different topics analysed by Manchester United, which are actually called 4+1: defensive organisation, attacking organisation, defensive transition, attacking transition and set pieces.

Manchester United will be on the road once again when they tackle Benfica at the Estadio Da Luz in Group A of the Uefa Champions League on Wednesday.

"Our goal is to qualify", Mourinho replied when asked at a press conference if a draw in Lisbon would be a decent result. He has point, though. "At Benfica, I learnt a lot about football and about the pressure of playing for a big club, because they are one of the best clubs in Europe".

Young Serbian winger was reportedly on the radar of Man United scouts after a fine display against CSKA Moscow in first round of the group stage.

The tweet featuring Martial, sent from Manchester United's official account had well over 1000 retweets in less than half an hour.

That could mean a slower tempo and conserving energy before the match against Huddersfield this weekend.

Martial managed only four Premier League goals last season, leaving fans questioning Mourinho's harsh treatment of the youngster.
