An embarrassing mistake by Benfica's 18-year-old goalkeeper Mile Svilar gifted Manchester United a 1-0 win at Benfica in Uefa Champions League Group A on Wednesday.

The man who scored the Reds' second-half victor at the Estadio da Luz, Marcus Rashford, was later withdrawn with an apparent knock and Mourinho does not yet know the extent of the young forward's problem. "But, no, he told me he was feeling something in his knee". It didn't look to me like a big thing but we don't know. But that's not the problem for us and there is another situation maybe I'm guilty of, I never speak about injuries.

"I think the way to do it is to ignore the players that are injured, is to focus on the players that are is to give confidence to the players that are available".

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.

Mourinho also got under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's skin by claiming the Italian "cries too much", and it would appear that the mind games are well and truly under way.

The Portuguese adopted a patronising and sarcastic approach after the final whistle, and made a dig relating to the Reds and their showing in the Premier League against United last weekend.

"We are happy, we have nine points, won the match, didn't concede goals, the game was calm, team was compact, control and nearly there".

"We had control, some difficulties in the first 30 minutes but then we controlled the pitch".

"But, again, you know, 12 matches, 10 victories, two draws, nine clean sheets".
