Manchester United's Eric Bailly picks Pizzi as Benfica's main threat

Manchester United's Eric Bailly picks Pizzi as Benfica's main threat

On the confusion surrounding the second-half penalty, Matic added: 'I think the manager decided that Daley needed to shoot - nothing special'.

Alison Bender and Stewart Robson discuss whether Jose Mourinho was right to criticise Manchester United fans who booed Romelu Lukaku.

"I'm not sure", Matic said when asked what happened.

Asked by reporters who he thought the Eagles' most risky player was, Bailly said: "There are various players but, in my mind in particular, Pizzi, because he played at Espanyol with me".

"It's not one goal or the ball goes against the post or save by the opposition keeper that can make Romelu's contribution below the top level".

After initially scoring 11 goals from 10 appearances, Lukaku has failed to net in five matches and the Belgian global has allegedly been booed by a section of the club's supporters.

Manchester United are now preparing for their Champions League clash against Benfica at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

The home side, who gave Scott McTominay a first start in the competition as the likes of Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Phil Jones and Rashford were rested from the start, were not wholly convincing in their display against a team without a point from four matches.

Mourinho is not expecting to have Paul Pogba or Marouane Fellaini available against Benfica.

He said: "We know it's one of the best leagues and there are good teams, and they're getting good results".

"We played well. To play well against a very good team feels even better".

"Ten points would be okay to qualify, but our main aim is to qualify first in the group".

On the brink of first-half stoppage time, United's growing pressure told, albeit thanks to yet more bad luck for Benfica's 18-year-old goalkeeper.

And Bailly, who is fit again after a groin problem, wants United to get out of the group as early as they can. "Nobody here thinks about Chelsea".

18y 65d - Mile Svilar is the youngest goalkeeper to save a penalty in a Champions League match (18y 65d old).
