Eric Bailly: What I really think about Man United summer signing

Eric Bailly: What I really think about Man United summer signing”

He has become a player Mourinho now trusts and allows him to rest those who remain of his injury-hit midfield.

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

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

"Our main aim is to finish first in the group".

"They have their own ambition and pride, we just want to get to the last 16 by finishing first".

Benfica are the only team in Group A against whom Lukaku has not scored and he will look to alter that as United seek a fourth straight win on Tuesday.

All five Premier League sides in the competition are now top of their groups and Bailly said: "We know it's one of the best leagues and there are good teams, and they're getting good results".

United, City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham have all started well in their Champions League campaigns, and Bailly believes it is a sign of the Premier League's resurgence in the competition after failing to produce a victor since Chelsea's triumph in 2012. Right now we're doing very well, winning games.

Luisao will miss out after being sent off against United at the Estadio da Luz but home fans may well get to see his fellow defender Ruben Dias - a reported target for Jose Mourinho - in action. "He's playing extremely well for us".

The Red Devils go to Chelsea on Sunday in the league but Mourinho said: "Nobody here thinks about another match than Benfica".

The United boss always adopts a reactionary stance in big games and rarely goes all guns blazing, preferring to kill off the game and maybe steal a goal.

Mourinho rejected the suggestion that Lukaku can be a quiet presence when he is not scoring goals, arguing that the striker gave Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Eric Dier a tough time on Saturday. I think the point is scoring goals or not scoring goals because in the end some players sometimes analyse.
