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".

Green Party Statement On The Impasse Between Catalonia And Spain
About 100 pro-independence protesters rallied in the rain outside central government offices in Barcelona on Thursday evening. Catalonia is Spain's economic engine, accounting for about a fifth of the total economy and more than a quarter of exports.

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.
