The last time Manchester United and Benfica faced off, few fans enjoyed what they watched.

BBC reports that Mexican Jimenez intercepted Eric Bailly's lazy cross-field pass deep inside his own half, but his shot cannoned off the post.

Four wins from four and that is one point away from job done as far as United and Mourinho are concerned for the Champions League group stages.

All five Premier League sides in the competition are now top of their groups and Bailly said: "We know it's one of the best leagues and there are good teams, and they're getting good results". Right now we're doing very well, winning games.

Man United flew out the blocks at the start of the campaign hitting 21 goals in their first seven league games.

After Saturday's 1-0 home win over Tottenham, Mourinho was disappointed that Lukaku had not been given vociferous support.

The Red Devils go to Chelsea on Sunday in the league but Mourinho said: "Nobody here thinks about another match than Benfica".

- Calls on fans to show more support for the star striker.

"I would like the supporters to explain to me why they don't support him so much because he gives everything and I think it is not fair when scoring the goal or not scoring the goal [he] makes the whole difference", Mourinho told MUTV. "He's playing extremely well for us".

A section of United fans booed Mourinho's decision to bring off Rashford against Tottenham, but when substitute Martial eventually scored the victor, Mourinho proceeded to make a "shush" gesture toward the TV cameras.

"What he does for the team is fantastic", added the United boss.

One of the reasons why Tottenham have done so well this season despite a plethora of injuries, especially in midfield is Mauricio Pochettino ensuring every player knows the system he wants to employ in every situation.
