Manchester United could only earn a single point against Liverpool at the weekend and they will be looking to get back to winning ways vs Benfica.
The Red Devils are currently on top of their Champions League group and surprisingly, the Portuguese giants are at the bottom after losing their first two fixtures.
As far as Manchester United’s team news is concerned, first choice PL defenders Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia have been left at home (MEN) and will not be featuring against the Primeira Liga club.
In such a scenario, we can expect Young to start in the right back position and Lindelof should return to start in the central defense to face his former club. Blind will probably start in the left back position.
Herrera and Matic should retain their places in the center of the park for Manchester United.
As far as the attack is concerned, Juan Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford should start behind lone center forward Romelu Lukaku. Here is Man Utd’s probable 4-2-3-1 XI vs Benfica.
