Manchester United have set out their stall to reach the Champions League knockout stage as group winners.

After opening their campaign with a couple of draws, United got themselves back on track by recording successive victories over Romanian minnows Otelul Galati, meaning that victory over Benfica at Old Trafford on Tuesday night would mean, at worst, Sir Alex Ferguson's men would require a point from their last-day encounter with Basle to reach the last 16.

However, according to midfielder Darren Fletcher, that conclusion alone would not be satisfactory for the Red Devils, who said: "You do want to finish top."
