Regarding Lukaku, Mourinho said after the match "I would like the supporters to explain to me why they don't support him so much because he gives everything".

With four wins from four games, United are six points clear at the top of the group and only a minor miracle will prevent them from reaching the knockout rounds for the first time since the 2013-14 season.

"I don't think it is fair at all".

The last time Manchester United and Benfica faced off, few fans enjoyed what they watched.

He said: "We know it's one of the best leagues and there are good teams, and they're getting good results".

Scott McTominay took his place in the squad and is now the one finding his hard work rewarded with a Champions League start.

And it seemed like he wouldn't be when he got down low to his right to push away Anthony Martial's first-half penalty expertly before denying Romelu Lukaku twice to really get the confidence flowing.

While the system likely won't bring strong winds to Florida, it does have the potential to bring heavy rain and strong storms. The storm is now located over Western Cuba, with winds of 40 miles per hour , barely above the criteria for a tropical storm.

"That little shush was 'be quiet, I'm going to do it my way and we are going to win my way'".

"We have to accept his style of football as many club's have done and he's very successful at doing it".

Lukaku, 24, also hit the post during that match, and Mourinho was keen to emphasis his centre-forward's general contribution as his team prepared for Tuesday's Champions League home match against Benfica. "He's playing extremely well for us".

Fresh off scoring the winning goal against Tottenham on Saturday to keep United within touching distance of their city rivals, Mourinho continued his rotation policy on the left and started the Frenchman on Tuesday night.

"What he does for the team is fantastic", added the United boss.

The Belgian global hit the ground running at Old Trafford following his £75m off-season move from Everton, scoring seven goals in his first seven Premier League matches.
