United take on Benfica knowing a win will take them a step closer to qualifying as group winners.

United can expect a tough time though as Benfica are undefeated this season and without defensive rock Nemanja Vidic the job will be that much harder.

Ashley Young makes a return to the starting line up following injury whilst Wayne Rooney misses out having failed to train yesterday.

Starting XI:De Gea, Fabio, Jones, Ferdinand, Evra, Valencia, Fletcher, Carrick, Nani, Young, Berbatov

Subs: Lindegaard, Smalling, Rafael, Giggs, Park, Gibson, Hernandez

    Decent line up.
    I hope we dont miss Nemanja Vidic to much.Phil should fill in good though.
    I thought I saw Ravel Morrison comimg of the team Coach.So he is there for experience and the ‘big match’feeling around OT.
    Do us proud Berbatov, your time to shine.
    Cmon you Reds.
