Manchester United play host to Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Red devils defeated the Portuguese side a fortnight ago in Lisbon and United’s manager, Jose Mourinho has hinted he could Marcos Rashford and Anthony Martial together.

“We played Marcus and Anthony

together in Swansea one week ago,” Mourinho explained. “So yes they can play together, so that’s no problem, what we cannot do is play with 12 and we cannot play with everybody at the same time, but we did.

“So we can repeat against Benfica or repeat in any other match, nobody here thinks about any other match than Benfica, nobody here thinks about Chelsea, so it’s Benfica, Champions League and only Champions League.”

Victory over Benfica on Tuesday evening would all but secure United’s qualification for the Champions League knockout stage and Mourinho aims to seal their passage through as soon as possible.

“Our aim tomorrow is to qualify,” he added. “Ten points would be okay to qualify, but our main aim is to qualify first in the group. The statistics are what they are but Basel have had good results against CSKA and Benfica, a draw is not bad, but Benfica will give us a difficult match.

“They have their own ambition and pride and they will try to win, we just want to get to the last 16 by finishing first in the group.”
