"When I first came to Benfica, the manager Jorge Jesus told me I would be playing as a defensive midfielder", Matic, who has impressed since joining United from Chelsea during the close season, told the club's television channel (MUTV) on Tuesday. "Other managers cry and cry and cry I don't cry".

"Marcus Rashford suffered something in his knee".

Jose Mourinho will want all his midfielders back from injury as soon as possible as his players now seem deflated. But if I want to moan and cry like the others, I can cry for the next five minutes.

Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic continue their comeback from serious knee ligament injuries, while midfielders Michael Carrick, Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are now out injured.

The result suited Manchester United, as it only left them two points behind leaders Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title.

"But, again, you know, 12 matches, 10 victories, two draws, nine clean sheets". The United striker promptly hit the ball over Svilar and though the 18-year-old keeper backtracked he failed to keep it from crossing the line to gift the visitors victory. "Bailly I don't think so". "Phil Jones to be on the bench - he was feeling that in case of real need he would help us, so if he was in that stage today, on Saturday he will be in conditions to play", Mourinho said. As a club they have a certain way of playing and as a club they've let that go for the time being.

"At Benfica I learnt a lot about football and the pressure of playing for a big club, because they are one of the best clubs in Europe. Sometimes it's not easy to work with him because he always demands more", he says. It was not magic, but it was a solid performance.
