Paper Round Mourinho has'no idea on Pogba return

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has urged the club's fans to show striker Romelu Lukaku more support, even when he is not scoring goals.

However, Lukaku has failed to score in his last three outings and even elicited groans from the home fans during Saturday's 1-0 win over Tottenham, despite providing the assist for Anthony Martial's victor.

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.

"I don't think it is fair at all".

But who impressed for Manchester United against Benfica?

Having carried a Marcus Rashford free-kick into his own net to gift United victory in the reverse fixture, 18-year-old Svilar scored an unwitting own goal when Nemanja Matic's shot hit the post and went in off his back.

He said: "I really don't understand some reactions why". The Red Devils only won on something of a fluke goal, with the keeper accidentally carrying the ball over his line on a free kick, and fans will be hoping for better this time around.

"The players felt it was quite easy to win against CSKA and Basel and they also felt it was hard to beat Benfica, it could have quite easily ended 0-0 or 1-1", he added.

It is no coincidence that United keep scoring late goals - 11 after the 80th minute already in the league this season.

"He is a young player who is showing enormous progression and significant development", said Vitoria of the 20-year-old, who only made his first senior appearance for Benfica in September. And Martial is part of that game plan: The Frenchman has come off the bench four times to score this season. "He's playing extremely well for us".

"Our main aim is to finish first in the group".

They will guarantee qualification for the knockouts rounds if they defeat Benfica at Old Trafford on Tuesday and CSKA do not beat Basel in Switzerland. We want him to stay with us for many years - he's from our academy.
