Manchester United fans blast Ander Herrera performance vs Benfica

The 19-year-old forward secured a 1-0 victory at Benfica after his free-kick caught out teenage goalkeeper Mile Svilar in Wednesday's Champions League encounter.

Jose Mourinho is hoping for the best after Marcus Rashford limped off with a knee injury but admits his Champions League's match-winner diagnosis remains firmly up in the air.

Mourinho, who had a short stint at Benfica as an assistant and then manager in 2000 in the early stages of his career, fielded an adventurous formation but the home side looked more likely to score in the opening half-hour.

On a night when a toothless Benfica could not even muster one shot on target having been thrashed 5-0 by Basel in their last match, United also struggled to create opportunities but victory in the return match at Old Trafford would assure their passage to the last-16 for the first time since 2014 with two games to spare.

He said: "You think we have any reason not to be happy?"

The Red Devils were criticised in some quarters for their defensive performance as they played out a goalless draw with Jurgen Klopp's men at Anfield.
