Mourinho's pragmatism transforming Manchester United

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been passed fit for the club's Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town.

The result left United on the verge of reaching the Champions League knockout stages, and the Portuguese manager was happy.

"Without any pressure, we knew the goal would arrive".

"We are one point from qualifying and one victory away from winning the group with two games at home to play".

The pair were Premier League winners together at Chelsea little more than two years ago and now they are looking for more success after being reunited at Old Trafford this summer. The unbelievable defensive work Liverpool did against us, Benfica could not do that for the whole game.

It came just four days after Liverpool fired blanks against Mourinho's side in a 0-0 draw at Anfield, a result that prompted some accusations of negative football.

Injuries to Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick have blunted United but its defense has held firm.

"So when he got the players we have played some really entertaining and effective stuff and have scored a lot of goals".

The 54-year-old told reporters: "We are silly if we don't know what is expected for us, unless it's a new player in the Premier League which we have only Victor Lindelof".

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

The wily Portuguese knows goals like Marcus Rashford's freak effort against 18-year old novice Mile Svilar, the youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history, will be hard to come by against stronger rivals.

But at least he can rely on United's rock-solid rearguard.
