Jose Mourinho has insisted that neither he nor his players will be thinking about next weekend’s trip to Chelsea in the Premier League as they focus purely on Champions League affairs on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils are preparing to host Benfica at Old Trafford on Tuesday as they look to take another step closer securing qualification for the knockout stage of the Champions League.

Manchester United will then turn their attentions towards their crunch clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next weekend in the Premier League as they look to keep their title challenge on track.

However, Red Devils boss Mourinho insists that he is not thinking about that game ahead of the clash with Benfica on Tuesday night.

Mourinho told a news conference on Monday: “Nobody here thinks about any other match than Benfica.

“Nobody here thinks about Chelsea.”

Manchester United were 1-0 winners over Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday as they kept pace with leaders Manchester City.

Chelsea, meanwhile, beat Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday to keep them within nine points of top spot.

Manchester United are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season after they finished in a disappointing sixth place in the table last term.
