Champions League: How we defeated Benfica - Mourinho reveals Manchester United's plan

To be good defensively is one step to get results.

Untied won thanks to Marcus Rashford's free-kick, which Svilar helped over the line. "We are one point from qualifying and one victory away from winning the group with two games at home to play".

United, who did not qualify for the Champions League last season, now have nine points out of nine in Group A and look nearly certain to qualify for the knockout stages but Benfica, without a single point, have a mountain to climb.

Asked about Mourinho hinting he could manage PSG in future, Neville told BBC Radio 5 Live's Ian Dennis: "I think a lot has been made of his comments".

For instance, you can now enjoy full multi-room audio playback, if you have more than one Alexa-supported speaker in your home. As the name suggests, the " Blast " will be the standard model and the " Megablast " will be a louder, more powerful version.

But the Belgian looked toothless in a dour 0-0 draw at Liverpool followed by the narrow win at Benfica.

United were without midfielders Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick, defenders Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic but Mourinho, in a perceived dig at some of his rival Premier League managers, said: "I never speak about injuries".

"But, no, he told me he was feeling something in his knee". We put men around him on corners so he can not come out.

The wily Portuguese knows goals like Marcus Rashford's freak effort against 18-year old novice Mile Svilar, the youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history, will be hard to come by against stronger rivals. A good game, solid.
