Mourinho led United to the Champions League by winning the Europa League last season
bbc.comJose Mourinho says "it is easy to guess" his Manchester United team for the Champions League tie at Benfica after claiming he is short of options.The Red Devils manager is still without Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Eric Bailly through injury, along with long-term absentee Zlatan Ibrahimovic.Defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw are nearing returns, but Wednesday's trip to Portugal is too soon for the pair.
United top Group A after winning both of their opening games.After convincing victories against Basel and CSKA Moscow, another three points against the Portuguese champions will put Mourinho's side on the verge of the last 16.The three-time European champions have not reached the Champions League knockout phase since 2013-14.Benfica, however, are fighting to keep their qualification hopes alive after a 2-1 home defeat to CSKA and a 5-0 thrashing at Basel.Rui Vitoria's side are third in the Portuguese top flight, having lost only once in their opening eight games.
How likely are Man Utd to progress[/img]
"CSKA are ranked by the Euro Club Index as the second-best team in the group so an away win for United against them was an excellent result. "United will virtually seal their place in the knockout phase with a win this week at Benfica."
