Manchester United extended their 100% record in the Champions League on Tuesday night, beating Benfica 2-0 thanks to a Mile Svilar own goal and a Daley Blind penalty.
The Red Devils currently top their Champions League group and are all but assured a round of 16 match against a 2nd placed finisher.
Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho has caused something of a stir in recent days by criticising the Manchester United fans.
"I'm more than happy," said Mourinho in the aftermath of the 2-0 victory. "We changed a lot of players and broke the dynamic of the team we played a kid from the academy [Scott McTominay].
"We score two goals we didn't concede. More money for the club. Three more points. No significant injuries."
Manchester United face Chelsea on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, hoping to keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City.
Meanwhile, Chelsea will be looking to bounce back in the best possible way after being thrashed 3-0 by Roma.
"Manchester City are already nine points ahead of us, Manchester United four and Tottenham one," Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said. "We must win games like these to remain at the top and close to the other ones.
"We will try to get the three points and will give our lives for it on Sunday."
Mkhitaryan's second half cameo
Henrikh Mkhitaryan started the season in blistering form by bagging five assists in the first five Premier League fixtures.
The Armenian midfielder has failed to maintain his early season form but replaced the injured Jesse Lingard at half-time of Tuesday night's Champions League win.
He looked far from his best and Manchester United fans on Twitter were quick to criticise the 28-year-old former Borussia Dortmund star.
There was one moment in particular which fans could barely believe - it was shocking even by Sunday League standards.
Mkhitaryan worked so hard to prove himself to Mourinho last season but he could find himself out of his manager's plans once again if he continues in his current vein of form.
Heavily criticised by his own supporters in recent weeks, Manchester United fans on Twitter had little sympathy for the out-of-sorts playmaker.
