Man United tops Benfica after young goalkeeper's mistake

While Mourinho's men have yet to drop a point in Group A, Benfica have yet to win one.

In the end it was an easy three points for the Premier League outfit, but the victory may have come at a cost as Rashford had to be removed from the action due to injury and will be a concern for boss Jose Mourinho for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield. Shouldn't be a surprising if Chris Smalling is paired up with Victor Lindelof against a young Benfica attack.

Jose Mourinho's side have won both of their opening matches, beating Basel 3-0 at home before winning 4-1 at CSKA Moscow. Michael Carrick has also not fully recovered which make Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic the obvious midfield choices for today's encounter. For Basel a loss would mean no going ahead into the next round.

"But I do foresee that in the future Lindelof will be a player of Jose Mourinho's team".

Mkhitaryan had United's final chance of the first half after breaking away from the Benfica defence, but the Armenian fired over the crossbar as the two teams headed down the tunnel at 0-0.
