Manchester United midfielder Anderson is delighted to be returning to Portugal for their clash with Benfica.

Anderson has responded to extra responsibility in midfield with a series of effective displays.

At 23, the Brazilian is hardly a veteran.

On his return to Portugal, though, the former Porto midfielder is proving to be a very handy replacement for Paul Scholes.

"It has been a great season for me so far," he admitted.

"Hopefully I can follow in Paul Scholes' footsteps."
