United seek KO phase security against Benfica

United seek KO phase security against Benfica

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku, right, misses a chance to score next to Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar, during the Champions League group A soccer match between Manchester United and Benfica, at Old Trafford, in Manchester, England, Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017.

An injury to Bailly prevented a reunion between the two when Manchester United secured a 1-0 win in Lisbon two weeks ago but, after his return to action in Saturday's victory against Tottenham Hotspur, the Ivory Coast man will be one of the players tasked with keeping the Portugal worldwide quiet.

There was a first Champions League start for 20-year-old Scott McTominay, who has been at United since the age of five.

He told a news conference on Monday: "The fans are the fans and I also said that the fans pay for their tickets and are free to express themselves and say they want to express, but my job is when I feel they deserve is to protect my players".

"I don't think it is fair at all".

United, City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham have all started well in their Champions League campaigns, and Bailly believes it is a sign of the Premier League's resurgence in the competition after failing to produce a victor since Chelsea's triumph in 2012.

"I've played against him and now I am fortunate to play with him".

He and Rashford will again have to fight it out for the left-wing slot as United welcome Benfica as leaders with maximum points, although Mourinho said that the duo could play together.

Mourinho will be without injured duo Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini against Benfica, while Antonio Valencia and Phil Jones could get the night off with a trip to Chelsea to come in the Premier League on Sunday.

He said: "We know it's one of the best leagues and there are good teams, and they're getting good results". Ten points would be OK to qualify but our main aim is to finish first in the group.
