Jose Mourinho was accused of employing anti-football tactics at Anfield on Saturday although his Manchester United team were only one precise Romelu Lukaku shot away from a “perfect away day performance”.

Mourinho will always employ the same strategy for these titanic clashes and it should be noted that the United defence has been seriously robust this season, in part due to having the best goalkeeper in the world between the sticks.

Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini might be missing from the midfield although Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are effective foils and we are likely to see a more expansive game plan at the Estadio da Luz from the visitors who will want to get their last sixteen spot nailed in the next couple of weeks.

Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford may return to the starting line-up, with Benfica having shipped seven goals in two matches and they were trounced 5-0 by Basel in their last European outing.

Benfica have won all four of their home matches domestically, although they are short of goals this season and will come up against arguably the best defensive team in Europe, with United worth taking to win this game to nil.
