Benfica v Manchester United talking points

Benfica v Manchester United talking points

Victor Lindelof has endured a stuttering start at Manchester United but Benfica manager Rui Vitoria has no doubt he will flourish under Jose Mourinho.

'Rojo is not coming (to Portugal) to play but he is coming with the team to train today with the group.

"I see a great improvement in the person, in the mood, in the face, in the body language - if you want just a word, in the happiness", said Jose Mourinho of Martial in September.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan should retain his place and he'll be looking to continue his fine form in Europe while Juan Mata may come back in to the side with Ashley Young dropping out. "I am very pleased with his attitude overall and then it's easier to play well".

Luke Shaw, who has also been out of Mourinho's plans due to a lack of fitness, also took part in the session.

'There is no Bailly (for tomorrow) - he was injured in the national team'.

United go into the encounter at the top of Group A with Benfica bottom of the group with no points from two games. I don't think I am going to end my career at Manchester United. "Whenever I pull on the United shirt I look to do as well as I can".

"I was asked", he added, "how is it possible in modern football that any manager is going to last 15 to 20 years in the same club?" These games were against CSKA, Paços Ferreira, Braga and Olhanense, with only the last one being away from Lisbon.

Benfica's loss to CSKA was their only competitive home defeat of 2017 and the head-to-head stats don't bode well for the hosts, having failed to beat United in their last four meetings. It's an impossible mission even if you try.

Manchester United lie 2nd in the Premier League table, two points behind their "noisy neighbours" Manchester City.

"I think it's impossible for us, with everything that surrounds the job, all the pressure that surrounds every job, I think it's impossible to last for so long".
