Everton Manager, Benitez is sure aware of the threats United pose as a team and has revealed plans to stop the Red Devils ahead of their encounter on Saturday
United will lock horns with the Toffees on Saturday after coming off a 2-1 comeback winner against Villarreal with Cristiano Ronaldo and Alex Telles booking spots on the score sheet.
It could mark as a point of turn around for a Man United team that has greatly struggled lately and Benitez knows this for sure.
The 61-year-old during a press conference today spoke of how he sees Man United as a team and how knowledged he is of their capabilities.
Despite having struggled against West Ham United and Aston Villa, also with Villarreal game, Benitez didn’t fail to acknowledge the fact that Man United is a talented side with so many stars at their disposal and ready to cause harm until the final whistle.
“They [mufc] can score at any time, they have so much quality,” Benitez said to reporters “They have the quality to score in the final minutes because they continue pushing and attacking. We have to concentrate from the first minute until the last minute.”
Man United saw a turn around goal delivered at the last minute of their Champions League first leg encounter against Villarreal. This greatly was of Cristiano Ronaldo’s display as he fired hot past the goal keeper.
Ronaldo has always been a threat to opponent teams since he broke into limelight following his move from Sporting to Man United before tripping across Europe and then back at Manchester.
Benitez knowing of Ronaldo’s talents disclosed he has also mapped out plans to stop the Portuguese during their encounter.
“I think Cristiano is a great professional,” Benitez continued, “with his age he is still doing really well so we have to keep an eye on him, but we have to keep an eye on the rest of the team. They [mufc] have so many good players that anyone can make the difference.”
Man United are boosted following Marcus Rashford’s full return to training as confirmed by the club officially.
