Jose Mourinho has made four changes to the side that faced Liverpool on Saturday as Manchester United prepare to take on SL Benfica at Estadio Da Luz.

Meanwhile the midfield woes remain unanswered for Manchester United, with two key midfielders Paul Pogba and Marounae Fellaini sidelined for the game.

United finally tested the inexperienced Svilar for the first time nine minutes before the interval - Nemanja Matic drilling an effort at him from a narrow angle after driving into the left side of the area.

Jose Mourinho's side now sit top of Group A with 6 points, while Benfica are rooted to the bottom of the table, having lost both of their opening fixtures.

Benfica were beaten 2-1 at home by CSKA Moscow before being trounced 5-0 by Basel in Switzerland. For Basel a loss would mean no going ahead into the next round.

United make their return to Champions League action tomorrow night with a trip to struggling Portuguese giants Benfica. Benfica now sit at the last spot in the table and a loss in Lisbon would ensure they remain there.
