Manchester United's Marcus Rashford available for trip to Huddersfield Town

Manchester United's dour 1-0 Champions League win over Benfica came against the backdrop of a typical Mourinho pragmatic approach to such matches. All are out with injury, posing a major detriment to United as it maneuvers through the UEFA matches.

Marcus Rashford drove an innocuous-looking long range free kick from the left touchline straight at the youngster, who caught the ball but back-pedalled with it beyond the goalline with his arms outstretched.

The second half was quite the same, up until the 65th minute, when Rashford chose to shoot for goal on his free kick.

Svilar was playing in his first-ever Champions League fixture at the age of 18 years and 52 days, making him the competition's youngest goalkeeper.

The end of the game received the most recognition from fans and the media.

"Lukaku is a nice lad, he's probably just given him some encouragement".

Jose Mourinho is an admirer of the former Anderlecht shot-stopper, commenting: "He's a goalkeeper with huge potential".

The Serbian, once accustomed to playing in a more advanced position, won a league title and a domestic cup at Benfica between 2011-2014 and revealed the time he spent in Lisbon had transformed him as a player.

As far as Man United's team news is concerned, Jose Mourinho may make three key changes in the team that started vs the Primeira Liga giants.

Mourinho's work in his first season was tremendous, and he is beginning his second just as strong.

A three-year spell at Portuguese giants Benfica helped Nemanja Matic develop into the player that he is today, the Manchester United midfielder said ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with his former club.
