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

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

"The manager said to us we have to try to shoot and to give some crosses towards him because he is young and it is his first game", Nemanja Matic said. "We put men around him on corners so he can not come out".

But the burly Belgian looked toothless in the draw at Liverpool and again on Wednesday in Lisbon. "It didn't look for me a big thing but you never know".

Naturally, Mourinho was only too quick to defend his approach.

"Sometimes I feel being good defensively is a crime, but that is a way of getting results". However, the Red Devils who have now played two successive games away from home will find it hard to keep a clean sheet since the host is fresh after a seven-day rest.


Despite winning, Mourinho's style has its detractors, including former Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy.

Man United did not have the personnel needed to mount a serious title challenge past year, and their insufficient resources eventually told as they finished in a lowly 6th place, a whopping 24 points behind winners Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping that Rashford is available for this weekend's fixture against Premier League newcomers Huddersfield town, their third away game in eight days.

A crisis could be looming for the hosts as Steve Mounie, and the two-times Young Player of the Year at the club, Philip Billing remaining doubtful for the game after picking minor injuries at Swansea.

"At the moment, for their desperation to win trophies, to get back to the top, they'll bring him in and they'll let it go for now, but there will only be a period Man United supporters and Man United as a football club will allow this to happen for".

Speaking on ITV's Champions League highlights show, Keane explained: "It will suit United".
