Manchester United fans blast Ander Herrera performance vs Benfica

Manchester United have battled to a 1-0 win at Benfica in the Champions League courtesy of a freaky goal, which embarrassed the hosts' teenage goalkeeper Mile Svilar.

'Of course when you move from the Portuguese championship to an English championship, so there is a phase, a stage of adaptation.

Untied won thanks to Marcus Rashford's free-kick, which Svilar helped over the line.

"Sometimes I feel being good defensively is a crime, but that is a way of getting results. We are basically I think one point away from qualifying and one victory away from winning the group so we are fine".

"Without any pressure, we knew the goal would arrive", Mourinho said after the Benfica game which was settled by a terrible error by the Portuguese side's 18-year-old keeper. "Without any pressure, we knew the goal would arrive".

The Holden workers' union blames a lack of government support through subsidies for GM's decision to end manufacturing. From now, every Holden in dealerships will be produced overseas, including Thailand, South Korea and the U.S.

United sit second in the table, behind early leaders Manchester City, in the wake of last weekend's 0-0 draw with Liverpool.

United were without midfielders Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick, defenders Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic but Mourinho, in a perceived dig at some of his rival Premier League managers, said: "I never speak about injuries".

The 18-year-old, whose appearance made him the youngest goalkeeper ever to play in the Champions League, gifted Marcus Rashford the only goal of the game at the Estadio da Luz.

"But we had stats and information about set pieces, so we needed to make him uncomfortable".

He said, as quoted by the Metro: "We put men around him [Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar] on corners so he can not come out". A good game, solid.
