Rookie goalkeeper's howler gifts Manchester United win at Benfica

The 19-year-old scored the only goal of Manchester United's win at Benfica after his free-kick caught out teenage goalkeeper Mile Svilar in Wednesday's Champions League encounter.

"I think the way to do it is to ignore the players that are injured, is to focus on the players that are available.it is to give confidence to the players that are available".

The only downside for Mourinho was watching Rashford hobble off with a knee injury. We brought a kid, like Benfica does, because I don't have another solution.

Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal last season and guided United to Europa League and EFL Cup glory but the ex-Chelsea boss and his tactics have been scrutinised following last week's goalless Premier League draw with Liverpool. "We are not bad". "Phil Jones to be on the bench - he was feeling that in case of real need he would help us, so if he was in that stage today, on Saturday he will be in conditions to play", Mourinho said.

"I think when he signed for Manchester United, I don't think anyone thought was going to be at United for 10, 15 years like Sir Alex Ferguson".

Mourinho said: "Rashford, I thought it was cramps because he was running so much, it was about muscular fatigue, but he felt something in his knee but to me it doesn't look a big thing".

"And after a lot of hard work, now, I am at Manchester United so I must have done the job well". They went from top to bottom - we went the opposite way during the match.

"We had control, some difficulties in the first 30 minutes but then we controlled the pitch".

Swiss side Basel are second with six points after a 2-0 win at CSKA Moscow, three points ahead of the Russian team, while Benfica are bottom with none.

But defensively the three-time European champions have also been solid, conceding just six goals in 13 games in all competitions.
