Man United risk losing identity under Mourinho - Bellamy

"I knew how good he was and I told the players how good he was", Mourinho said to BT Sport. A good game, solid'.

"That's why we controlled the game because we defended properly and the goal was not against the current of the game, but we end up ending the game and we are nearly qualified so that's it".

Mourinho, who was left sweating over a knee injury to Marcus Rashford, believes focusing on the backline is crucial after watching his side move onto nine points after three Group A games in Europe's elite club competition.

He said: "There is another situation maybe I'm guilty of, I never speak about injuries".

Herrera was initially unable to break into the United team this season but after injuries to Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Paul Pogba, he's finally found some game time for himself.

Met Eireann say there is a high risk of flooding over the weekend especially in costal regions with high tides expected. Some transport disruption is likely across the warning area, with delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport.

"Other managers cry and cry and cry, I don't cry". Other managers cry and cry and cry when some player is injured. We brought a kid, like Benfica does, because I don't have another solution.

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. Twelve matches, 10 victories, two draws, nine clean sheets. "Sometimes it's not easy to work with him because he always demands more", he says.

"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".
